Woodworker’s tool-sharpening workshop is July 19

CBMM_ToolSharpeningWorkshop(ST MICHAELS, MD – June 14, 2017) The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum in St. Michaels, Md. is hosting a basic tool-sharpening workshop on Wednesday, July 19, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. in the Boatyard. Participation is limited, with advanced registration needed.

If taken care of properly, your edge tools can last generations. By keeping them well-honed, you will find they can cut like new every time. Learn the basic techniques to put a mirror finish on your aging tool collection. This workshop will cover the proper preparation, sharpening, and honing of hand plane irons, chisels, gouges, and other carving tools.

Bring your tools, sharpening stones, or nothing at all, as the Boatyard can provide for demonstration. The cost for the workshop is $20 for CBMM members or $30 for non-members, with pre-registration needed at bit.ly/toolsharpening17. For more information, visit cbmm.org.
