Tool Sharpening


Learn to sharpen tools effectively - did you know that many tools are sold blunt?


Tool sharpening for green woodworking tools, ie axes, drawknives, billhooks, turning tools, chisels, slashers.


Spend the day learning a number of techniques using various sharpening equipment in the lovely surroundings of Ecclesall Woods Sawmill.


If you are new to Greenwood craft this will be a very interesting course and is fundamental to effective green woodworking.


If you have tools which are giving you problems - bring them along for Dave to look over - he will either help you get them sharp or advise you what to do. (please restrict to 2/3 tools as you will only realistically have time to work on a couple of tools)


Please let us know if you have any specific requirements or needs.

Refundable up to two weeks prior to course (minus £10 admin fee) No refunds for cancellations within two weeks of course.


All materials and tools are provided for you on the day. You will need to bring a packed lunch - drinks are provided! Wear suitable clothes for working outdoors.
