Chisels are one of the most useful tools for woodworking. They are super simple but getting good results isn't intuitive, it requires learning how to simply exploit their strengths.

 

In this workshop we will focus on honing your layout and chiseling skills, a valuable skill for any woodworker. The skill building challenge is to replicate a Gottshall block using only a chisel and mallet.

 

This class is good for all skill levels alike as it either tests your chiseling skills or keeps them sharp.

 

Martin Alexander will help guide you through the process of practical layout techniques and how to make a Gottshall block using a chisel to its full potential in a step by step process.

Tools provided: Two Cherries Chisel, Combination Square, Pencil, Joinery Mallet, Clamps, and bench vice.  Tuition includes wood and materials.

Participants must be 18 years or older.
