In this 4 day class you’ll be able to build this beautiful sharpening pond for your shop. I designed this pond to be a relaxing and stress free place to hone your tools as I believe sharp tools are so important in working wood. Not only are sharp tools a joy to use but they are also safer. In the construction process you’ll be learning mortise and tenon joinery, mitered joinery using 30, 45 and 60 degree angle, spline joinery. You will also learn how to work with bamboo and tips on minimizing splitting , which is a common problem. Included in this project is a fountain pump with filter that makes the pond self-contained. Even if you don’t sharpen everyday having the pond running with the water trickling creates a nice ambiance for your shop. This sharpening pond was featured in the 2015 November issue of Popular Woodworking Magazine.
