Few things determine your success as a fine, hand tool woodworker more than the sharpness of your tools. And nothing makes woodworking more frustrating than a dull edge. In this course, award-winning craftsman and instructor Frank Strazza will reveal to you his secrets for honing a razor edge on your woodworking tools.
First, he will go over the pros and cons of different types of sharpening stones and tell you which ones he uses, and why. Then he will walk you step by step through sharpening chisels, planes, saws and scrapers. Not only will you learn to sharpen them but Frank will be showing you how to restore a saw, complete with jointing and setting the teeth, as well as how to repair a damaged chisel and how to setup and tune a brand new one.
When you’ve finished this course, you’ll be inspired to head to the shop, pull all your tools out and sharpen them up. Then you’ll discover the sheer joy of working wood with a razor edge. Your saws won’t fight you anymore, your chisels will slice through end grain like butter and your planes will make shavings you can be proud of! Most of all, your projects will take a noticeable step up in quality.
