Tormek Sharpening System Promotion…And Father’s Day Gift IdeaMay 31, 2013
Shelter at the WoodenBoat Show, June 28-30, 2013June 13, 2013
Join guest instructor, author, sawyer, and woodsman, Mike Beaudry for a one-day log-hewing workshop, Saturday June 22, 2013 from 9:00 to 4:00 pm at the Shelter Campus.
You will learn the process of hand hewing:
- how to size and layout the log ends for hewing
how to score the log with axes, and
the process of juggling to remove most of the waste.
Registration Begins at 8:30. The class will run from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm. Tuition is $95.00. You can register online at the Shelter Tools website.
The class will be taught generally with the double-bevel Gransfors Axe. We will provide some tools, but students should bring their own axe if they own one. Students will be introduced to a number of hewing axes, including the antique single-beveled Pennsylvania Patter Axe as well as froes. We will discuss tool selection, maintenance, and sharpening. All students must wear protective clothing – long heavy fabric paints and heavy steel-toed boots.
Each student will have their own log to hew and will receive both group and one-to-one instruction. The class will be held rain or shine in our spacious workshop or outside as the weather permits. Students will receive a 10% discount on any tools and materials purchased during the class in our hand tool shop, Shelter Tools.
