Workshop Instructor: Hank Gevedon

Learn how to build three of the most versatile tools ever designed. These tools allow you to craft a range of amazing projects. Students will make an awl, wood chisel, and crooked knife over the course of the day. They will forge, sharpen, grind, heat treat and polish the three woodworking tools. They will handle and final sharpen the tools. This is a great way to begin tool making. Use of tools and handbook will also be covered and a project workbook will be available for purchase for $10 onsite from the instructor.
