Currently Christopher Schwarz and Mary May will be guess demonstrators as well at the event so the planes won’t be the only reason to come out. I hope to learn a few techniques in carving from Mary. It has always been something I have admired and tried my hand at since a young age. I loved to carve wax and clay. I moved on to doing chip carving and some relief stuff later and then small figures but never got really serious about it.
I hope that anyone who has wanted to try out a traditional 18th century style hand plane will come on out and join in at the event. It should be fun and informative for all.
I am happy that they have invited me to be a part of the event and will likely do another one or two this coming year as well. I will update everyone via the blog if and when that comes about.
