2016 Six-week Spring Apprenticeship: A Focus on Wood

A Razor-Sharp Chisel

Sharpening a chisel is a woodworker's meditation. It sharpens your mind, cultivating the focus to do precise wood joinery. In your first days in this apprenticeship, you will learn to create a razor-sharp edge on your chisel . . . a skill that took me 10 years to achieve on my own. Each piece of wood has a unique "personality." A woodworker's joy lies in expressing this inherent underlying beauty.

Once the timber-frame is standing, your carpentry skills will be further cultivated in the construction of the straw clay walls and finally in the framing of the roof.
