The Warren

This two-day, hands-on workshop is for all levels of ability and is taught at The Warren, a community workshop on Cross Street, behind Karangahape Road.

We will progress from an introductory level, enabling complete beginners to get a great grounding, through techniques that will get progressively more sophisticated, allowing practicing woodworkers at all levels to extend their planing skills and understanding.

A plane for you to work with will be provided, but you can bring your own along if you prefer.

What you will learn:
- The types of metal planes and their uses
- Plane parts, how to dismantle, clean and reassemble metal planes
- Blade types and purposes
- Types of sharpening stones
- How to grind and sharpen blades
- How to plane straight and true edges, surfaces and ends
- How to tweak and tune planes to improve performance

About the series:
The Warren is proud to be hosting master woodworking John Shaw for a series of three two day courses in April and May 2019. Join one class, or take them all; they work as a series. Each course runs for two days, 9am-5pm.

This is a rare opportunity to hone your woodworking skills with an expert who has 30 years of making and teaching experience. All courses are appropriate for beginners and experienced woodworkers. No matter who you are, you’re sure to benefit from John’s knowledge and skills.
