From Matt Bickford’s blog (Matt is the author of “Mouldings in Practice“)
This weekend I will be teaching a class at The Connecticut Valley School of Woodworking. The students attending this two day class will build a round and leave with the tools, material and understanding to make the matching hollow at home.
We will cover all of the essential elements included in the process: including making a proper fitting wedge, bedding an iron, profiling the sole, creating the matching iron and sharpening profiled edges.
Whether someone intends to make a series of planes for themselves or rehabilitate antique planes, these specific steps are the major necessities.
Come join us!
