Precision with Hand Tools

Garrett Hack
July 27-31

Hand tools open up new vistas of efficiency, accuracy, and enjoyment for woodworkers, even those with modest skills. In this course, Garrett leads participants through a series of exercises to expand and refine their hand tool skills. These include flattening boards to polished smoothness, jointing two edges to form an invisible glue joint, fairing curves, fitting drawer faces, shaping and chamfering edges, making an inlay, and cutting joinery, among others. Through discussion and demonstration, Garrett explores the tuning and efficient use of a wide variety of planes, marking tools, chisels, and saws.

Participants can choose to work entirely with sample boards or to build a small, pre-designed table that links these same skills to the challenges of working to reality. The table allows room for variation, and either path provides lasting insights and skills for integrating hand tools into your working process.
