If you’ve ever wanted to sharpen your own saws, but didn’t know where to start, I can’t think of a better setting to learn the skill than at Lie-Nielsen’s headquarters in beautiful Warren, ME. Lie-Nielsen has a well-deserved reputation for being first class hosts, and this is sure to be no exception.
Over the course of two days, I will cover the basics of saw tooth geometry before moving on to practice filing both rip and crosscut teeth.
Lie-Nielsen Workshop – Warren, ME
Saturday & Sunday, May 13-14
9:00 – 5:00 (Saturday), 9:00 – 4:00 (Sunday)
Registration and further details are available on the Lie-Nielsen website. If you have any questions, please contact either myself or Lie-Nielsen.
The dates chosen for the workshop are Mother’s Day weekend. I hope that you offer it again on a neutral weekend so that l could take it. DBain
Sorry, I didn’t even notice that when we booked the class. Sorry you won’t be able to make it, but if this one goes well, maybe you’ll have another chance in the future.
I was fortunate enough to take Isaac Smith’s saw sharpening class at Lie Nielsen Toolworks during the weekend of May 13th. Just incredible,Isaac is such a wonderful instructor. His teaching method is friendly,and down to earth. When Isaac first mentioned Physics and Geometry we all rolled our eyes,but not for long. Soon we too were Mimi Einsteins as we tackled the science of properly tuning and sharpening a saw. I have finished three antique saws since the class and am very pleased with the results.
Mike, It’s very gratifying to hear that you learned enough to go home and try some on your own. Now that you’ve learned sharpening, I hope you’ll never have to suffer the indignity of cutting with a dull saw again!
