Event description

Description

Just the word Skew chisel can make some people tremble with fear! But presented in the right way the Skew can become one of the most used and versatile tools in your workshop. The course is designed to give you the know-how on how to keep your Skews looking and performing at their best, as well as the understanding of how to use them effectively.

What you will learn

The day begins with a welcome talk, including a hot drink, health and safety brief and a breakdown and review of the equipment you will be using. You will start your day practicing how to make the right type of shaving before moving onto creating a Christmas tree. Your main project will be a two piece candlestick of your own design.

Your tutor will take you through the different types of Skew chisels available, from standard to tapered, oval to round and rolled edge to straight. Creating intentional catches will help you understand how the tool works and allow you to quickly build up your understanding of Skews. You will also be guided on how to use different parts of the Skew to make a variation of cuts and effects, such as: planing, beading and flaring.

We encourage you to bring your own Skews as sharpening will be a large part of the day and it would be a missed opportunity to go away without a razor sharp edge on your own tools.

What you’ll take home

  • A Christmas tree
  • A two-piece candlestick
  • Certificate of attendance
