Japanese Woodworking Tools For The Western Workshop w/ Wilbur Pan

If you are in the NYC area please join us tomorrow night for the

NYC Woodworkers Guild April Meeting:

Japanese Woodworking Tools For The Western Workshop

Guest Speaker:  Wilbur Pan

Japanese tools are useful to have for woodworking, but knowledge on how to use them has often been cloaked in terms of mysticism and exoticness. This talk will provide an overview of Japanese saws, chisels, and planes in plain English: how they work, how they are made, and how they can be used for any woodworking project, Asian or otherwise. Check your Zen at the door.

Monday April 22nd 7-9pm

Makeville Studios  119 8th St Brooklyn, NY 11215

All are welcome!!  Hope to see you there!
