NTWA is sponsoring a sharpening class focusing on chisels, planes and scrapers.  It will be a mix of lecture and hands on experience as shown on the attached agenda.  Drop in for just the part you are interested in or stay for the whole day- your choice.  Lunch is on your own but there are many options to choose from in the area.  We are also opening this up to any of the Woodcraft walk in customers as an outreach event to get additional people introduced to the club.

Things to bring (if you have them):  sharpening stones, diamond stones, chisels, planes or scrapers that need a little love (please note we are there to sharpen, not to repair damaged/badly nicked edges since that takes much longer)

10:00-11:00 Introduction to sharpening – Maintenance vs Restoration
11:00-12:30 Hands on sharpening – Sharpen your own chisels (bring your stones if you have them)
12:30-1:00 Lunch

1:15-2:30 Sharpen your own plane blade
2:30-3:00 How to sharpen a card scraper
