The all-day Taster is designed for those of you who would like a more complete introduction to handmade joinery than our 2.5hr Taster. 

You'll spend the day learning how to measure, mark and cut several different joints by hand, using knives, gauges, saws, and chisels. 

We'll also show you how to sharpen a bench chisel using diamond plates and Japanese waterstones.

By the end of the class, you should have a better grasp of the subject and hopefully will be looking forward to taking your knowledge and skills a step further by booking a place on to one of our 2-day Mortice and Tenon Weekend Joinery classes or the 3-day Basic Skills Joinery Class
