Hand tools are highly efficient, precise and safe and with a little routine they will open many doors. By using typical working techniques from furniture construction you will discover how fascinating and sensual the work with hand tools can be. During »tool tuning« our course instructor will demonstrate how to optimize your hand tools and working techniques. Try different planes, measuring tools, chisels and saws to discover which one matches the best. You can also try to work the different kinds of wood and see how they respond.
  • If you book more than one course with Garrett Hack, we will give you a DICTUM voucher worth €20.
