Make a Moulding Plane w/ Stephen Slocum

Make a Moulding Plane w/ Stephen Slocum


Three Days

Make your own traditional side escapement molding plane using traditional tools and floats.  You can choose one of 4 simple molding plane profiles: cove, thumbnail, ogee or bolection.  

We'll cut and shape the iron for the plane at the Pittsboro school, and on the third morning visit the shop of renowned blacksmith Peter Ross, who will demonstrate hand forging a plane blade and assist us in hardening and tempering our blades. Back at the school, we'll sharpen and tune the plane for a lifetime of beautiful moldings!

This workshop requires some skill at handtool woodworking, the ability to accurately lay out with knife and pencil and, importantly, the ability to cut up to but not over layout lines.

Stephen Slocum is our newest instructor and his teaching is unexcelled! He has worked with Bill Anderson for many years and I recommend this class most highly!

Materials fee $45 payable directly to instructor on day of class
