New Series – Work Faster, Neater & Be In Control!

by | Jan 26, 2017 | 6 comments

Our latest video series is all about sharpening edge tools.

But it’s not just about getting sharp.
It’s a detailed yet entertaining look at the perfect edge, right from the very concept of sharpening, through to optimising precisely for a given task.

There are 7 Chapters in total, with well over three hours of footage.

And we’d like you input for Chapter 8.
Any one who pre-orders the Series will be able to input questions for Chapter 8, which will be filmed as a Q&A to the most common and interesting queries brought up.

We’ve added a brief overview of the Chapter on the Series Sales page, so please find more details here.

Edit: The Series Is Now Complete!

    As ever, Richard, excellent.

    Where can we get your backing music? It’s joyful.

    cool idea for a series,
    suggestion for chapter 8: how to sharpen a bluddy cabinet scraper. None of us beginners can get it right- at least not me anyway. (Not a card scraper mind, any twat can get that ‘un going…)

    Love the analogy Richard.

    Looking forward to it immensely and have put my pre-order in.


  5. Brian

    Pre-ordered! Looking forward to it… as new woodworker, sharpening is the white elephant in my shop.

    Quick question Helen/Richard – do you have an update on your future material: a while ago you talked about the wooden hand plane making videos, on YouTube? Premium would be great too.

  6. George

    Hi Richard,

    I am sorry but i am making a stand here. No more video series for me, until you release the hand plane build video.

    I just have to keep my finger from pressing buy now on paypal…
