Japanese Plane: Shaping Wood


You sharpened and set up a Kanna (Japanese plane)! You made a pile of beautiful shavings! You resharpened a few times, made more shavings and now your plane needs some adjustment. Or, you want to expand your skills. This half day class focuses on the use and tweaking of the Kanna.

You will learn how to create a flat surface, how to square an edge, how to position your body and move while planing. You will also get plenty of time to practice and ask questions.
