    What! You are going to pass up on the Dovetail class. It is probably Rob's most renown class. Let me guess, you are worried how much more damage your wife can do at the Centerpointe and Woodland Malls.

    I learned quite a bit taking a course in plane and chisel sharpening. I have four wooden planes and a dozen or so metal planes in various states of disrepair. I do have a few good users, including one that I restored that dates to about 1893 and takes shavings less than 1/64th".

    Tom,

    I took the Great Hand Plane Revival course last fall at the WoodCraft Store in Spokane. Well worth it! It improved my handplane functioning immensely even without the recommended sharpening system. Note I was deaf at the time I took it. I'm sure with hearing, it would have been even better!
