Jigs & Fixtures for Hand Tool Work with Graham Blackburn October 8 - 9, 2022

about this workshop

Having a hand tool in good condition is only half the battle. The other half is knowing how to use it. This implies being familiar with all the various jigs and fixtures that have been developed by woodworkers over a long period of time to guarantee speed and precision. The use of hand tools seldom means freehand tool use, whether sawing, planning or boring. Although unfamiliar to most woodworkers, these jigs and fixtures are simple to make and simple to use. The list is virtually endless, but in just a weekend, students will learn how to use — and make — some of the most important ones. Everyone will be amazed at how much faster and how much more exactly the work becomes.
