Late fall classes 2016

A couple of classes left for 2016, here’s the details.

Saturday & Sunday October 29 & 3oth, learn riving, hewing & drawknife work at Plymouth CRAFT. http://www.plymouthcraft.org/riving-hurdlemaking-weekend

test fit

In this class, we split apart an oak log, learning how to “read” the log for best results. Then using a froe, we further break the stock down, and make garden hurdles. So, riving, hewing, shaving at a shaving horse, mortising – a busy weekend full of old techniques still applicable today. The link above will take you to the details.
