About this Event

This class will teach you how to sharpen woodturning tools with the grinder in the wood shop. We will discuss the wheels, the jigs on site and will sharpen every tool in sight. I will cover sharpening using a jig, using a platform and free hand. Each student will get to sharpen a tool or two since it is the only way to learn the feel.

If you have tools please bring them, it is always best to learn on your own tools. If you want to buy tools to start with I always recommend a cheap M2 high speed steel set. Harbor freight carries one and Wood World carries Benjamin's Best tools that are half the cost of others. Once you know how to sharpen you will be amazed at how much more enjoyable woodturning is.
