Those who enroll in the class will learn how to forge, grind, sharpen and heat treat various types of tool steel. This tool steel is used to make chisels, draw knives, gouges, inshaves and scorps for woodworking projects. Also included will be several methods for making and attaching handles to the tools. The seminar is for all levels of expertise.
The seminar will consist of three hours of classroom instruction and three hours of forge demonstrations. Students must furnish their own safety glasses: this is mandatory.
The cost of the class, including materials, is $45 and space is limited to 30 students. Students must be at least 14 years of age to participate. Register now to guarantee your spot.
