As the owner of over 200 carving chisels, 30 Handplanes, 20 Bench Chisels, Drawknives, Scrapers and other cutting edge tools, Ray has done a lot of sharpening over the years. After trying nearly every method available, he has found a system, using the least amount of equipment, taking up the least amount space, which is quick to set up for getting his tools razor sharp, so he can get back to the fun stuff, working wood, in the least amount of time. In this class Ray will explain the pros and cons of different sharpening methods as well as demonstrate how he sharpens all of the above mentioned cutting edge tools. Students are encouraged to bring a plane iron that needs some attention, or maybe a couple of bench or carving chisels to give it a try. Card scrapers are covered as well. Students will be pleasantly surprised to find out how easy sharpening can be, which makes woodworking a more pleasurable experience. Read Ray's bio here. There is no materials fee or required tools for this class.
