Wooden Block Plane, December
Wooden Block Plane
Date: Friday, December 8, 9:30AM–4:00PM
Instructor: Wayne Ford
Class Size: 5
Registration Deadline: November 25
Students are invited to join shipwright Wayne Ford to enhance their skills and home tool kit as they create their own custom hand plane. Participants will start with a block of wood and mill out the various wooden parts to hold the plane iron and adjusting mechanism. The wooden body will then be shaped to the student's preference. By the end of the class participants will have a working hand plane to bring home to use in in other projects. Planes are invaluable hand tools and are used to smooth surfaces, square up the ends of boards, and shave edges of doors and windows to create a snug fit into a frame. This class takes place in the shop at the HRMM Wooden Boat School located at 86 Rondout Landing in Kingston's historic Rondout district.
The Wooden Boat School was founded by the Hudson River Maritime Museum in 2015 to preserve the maritime craft traditions of the Hudson Valley and to teach a hands-on interpretation of the living history of the Hudson River. The school offers diverse curriculum and opportunities which inspire skills in woodworking, boat building, and maritime craft. Also available are restoration services for wooden boats. A class calendar and details can be found at www.hrmm.org/woodworking.
