I have had quite a few requests for an advanced plane making class, and I’m pleased to announce that it is coming soon. This advanced class will be longer and more in depth than my regular class and it is highly recommended that students will have taken my other class or watched my DVD before taking this one.
In this class, I will guide students through making two planes: A jack plane with an applied sole and a jointer, shaped just like my uniquely gripped jointers that I sell.
This class will cover:
- Applying an exotic wood sole – Why and how
- Choosing a bed angle
- Choosing material for a longer plane
- Inserting a patch in front of the blade for better wear properties
- An in depth exploration of shaping a plane, as we make a long jointer become the most comfortable plane you own.
- Access to my templates for my unique jointer design.
The tool list is the same as the regular class, will be held online using Google Hangouts, and will require 6 sessions as opposed to 4. Taking my basic plane making class or watching my DVD previously is very highly recommended.
I want to run through this class once, starting June 16 at 3pm, before I officially add it to my schedule. My regular price will be $325 per person, but I will be accepting up to 5 “test subjects” to work through this first run with me for $225. Students will need 2 Hock blades (PL200), which they can purchase from me for $59 each and free shipping. Three of the spots have been filled, leaving only 1 or 2 more before I start the class. If you are interested, please email me right away and reserve your spot.
