SKILLS WEEK - Sharpening & Essential
Cabinetmaking Hand Skills
Another EXTRA DATE 12-16 December 2016 has now been scheduled
This really is the final 'SKILLS WEEK' course this year so don't miss out!
Due to the overwhelming popularity of this course John has decided to schedule one final course in 2016.
The Cabinetmaking Skills Week is the course you’ve been waiting for. If you’re a complete beginner this will give you the perfect grounding; if you’ve been woodworking for a while, this will be a great tune-up, sorting out any bad habits and reinforcing fundamental skills.
Everything in Woodwork is based on Sharpening so this is the initial focus. You MUST have a sharpening system at your fingertips that works for you, we will look at angles, the exotic and not so exotic steels used for blades, high speed grinders, water-cooled grinders and bench stones. You will learn a method of sharpening freehand, but you will also learn how to use honing guides – it’s quite OK if freehand honing remains an aspiration for the moment. Western dovetailing and cross-cut saws are great to use, but they also need to be super-sharp for accurate work, so we’ll look at sharpening a Dovetail Saw too. Read more and book......
The group is kept to maximum of six students on each course, allowing for plenty of individual support from John Lloyd.
This really is your last opportunity to book yourself on this incredibly popular course in 2016.
If you can't make the 2016 date, our 2017 short course dates will be published in July so keep an eye on our website for details.
You will make this laminated Cheese Board with tapering chamfers and a Biscuit Box with through dovetails and through wedged tenons, to take away with you showcasing the skills you will have learned and to amaze your family and friends with your achievements!
