  • Good combination of theory and practise for sharpening hand tools

    Maurice provided us with a useful theoretical background to ensure we knew how we should tackle each tool. We then had the opportunity to use a wide range of both hand and power equipment to grind, hone and polish a range of tools, with participants being able to lead our own learning as required and relevant to us. Thanks Maurice:-)

  • Great day tool sharpening :)

    Many thanks for such an excellent day yesterday. I enjoyed it so much the time flew by and my knowledge and understanding of sharpening tools now is so much better than before.

  • Getting the best from your tools

    Although I had experience of sharpening joinery tools using the traditional old school oilstone before attending the course, I wanted to learn how to reach the ultimate shave-sharp to help me enjoy my newly found interest in green woodworking. This workshop brought me up to date with a variety of best methods of achieving this, covering a wide range of tools used in the craft - thanks Maurice.

  • Relaxed and friendly environment

    The workshop was very informative and really enjoyable. It was a relaxed and friendly environment with a small group which made learning efficient. We were encouraged to use both machine and hand sharpening techniques.
    Maurice was always close to hand to guide and instruct. He's even got eyes in the back of his head...doesn't miss much! Thank you.
