This class will focus on the steps involved with planning, design, and building various wood lathe chisels. Each student will pick at least one chisel design from provided supplies and build one for class completion and one for personal use (if you so chose).
If you choose to build more than 2, all but your personal chosen chisel will become PPM property at class completion. The class chisels will be left in the wood shop for everyone's use. Price will be $50 for supplies and instruction. This series includes 3 nights of instruction and my time for assistance to work on designs. You must attend the first night (26 Nov) and turn in a working chisel at completion of course. The other two nights (3 & 10 Dec) are for assistance and guidance on design and building the handle and grinding the tool steel to proper geometry.
Price out a new chisel and you will see this is a VERY inexpensive class! You get to keep a chisel that could easily cost twice the price of this class.
