Sharpening and Using Handsaws: Sharpen a Handsaw (and an Auger Bit)
with Mike Siemsen
Experience Level: Beginner, no prior experience needed
Saturday October 2 & Sunday October 3, 9am-4pm (2 sessions)
Discover the benefits of working with properly sharpened tools in this workshop designed to help keep your shop equipment in peak condition! Wood artist Mike will highlight qualities to look for in a handsaw and demonstrate techniques to bring an old saw back to life. On day two, use your newly sharpened saws to make a sawbench/sawhorse!
Bring a 10 to 6 point saw that needs to be sharpened and a saw vise if you have one, an 8 point saw is best. You may also bring extra saws for evaluation. Many students bring an 8 point crosscut saw and a 5 or 5 1/2 point ripsaw and sharpen them both!
*If you do not have a saw that you want to practice on Mike has saws available to practice on, along with saws that will be for sale during the workshop.
Instructor will provide files and vises for use in class
