Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Monday 25th-Friday 29th March 2024
These simple tools made popular by legendary woodworker James Krenov, whilst uncomplicated in their construction, offer infinite possibilities awaiting within these lovely tools. From a palm size block plane to a curved sole or high angle scraping plane, these planes are not just any plane, but a tool made by you for you - a tool with personality, uniquely crafted for your work.
Why do we make them?
How are they tuned and used in one's work?
These questions and others will be explored as a collective learning experience guided by three self-confessed Wooden Plane addicts - John Shaw, David Fleming & Lachlan Park.
Expect to complete and tune two planes and a setting hammer during the workshop.
We will allow ample time to develop your planing skills.
