It was a great November weekend for the Saturday Sharpening Class and Sunday Mastering the Skew Class at Barb's Barn

Saturday's session, with 9 students, was devoted entirely to sharpening skills and knowledge

Not only did everyone have their grinder, but also their lathe to try out each tool as completed

Warren Stevens gets the rests adjusted on his grinder

Jim Shimwell works on one of his tools after the lecture on tool angles and grinding techniques

As the day wound down, all of the students had sharpened and tested every tool they had brought with them

The barn got a sweeping and general clean-up as the day ended

Does Jake Debski look ready for the Mastering the Skew day on Sunday?
