UW Artisan Program – November 2016
It’s a wonderful thing really- making your own hand tools and then using those tools to build fine furniture. That’s what the Residents in our 10 Week Artisan Program are doing and we thought it would be nice to share some highlights with you.
This video shows some of the day to day happenings during week 6 of 10 in the program. The Residents are using quarter-sawn white oak and making a Fixed-Fence Kerfing Plane and Frame Saw.
If I’m being honest, the best part of the process doesn’t actually show up in this video but happened the week after this one when they used these tools to cut their own veneer and create a 17th Century French Parquetry panel for their cabinets! It was amazing to witness the process and feel their excitement.
The hardware we’re using is from Bad Axe Tool Works and is available to order right here.
