B. Traditional Hand Tools Series: Winding Sticks

Learn the skills and techniques of traditional woodworking while building your very own hand tools, in this ongoing series of workshops.

Winding sticks are an important tool for checking if a board or panel is “wound” or “twisted”. When dimensioning stock by hand, the winding sticks are placed at either end of a board, and they exaggerate the twist of the board in order to identify high spots that must be planed down in order to produce a coplanar surface. The class is open to students ages 14 and up. Masks and social distancing are required in this and all Sawtooth classes.

Materials: $20 payable to the instructor upon the start of class
