Hand Planes & Wireless Routers
Woodworking Unplugged at the Andover Historical Society
Leave the 21st century behind to step back in time to an era before electricity when you enter the 187 year-old Amos Blanchard Barn.
Breathe in the atmosphere of this unique place. Listen to the hum of a handsaw cutting though air-dried lumber and the sound of a sharp plane shaving curls of wood from a board. Pick up a 19th century plane or router and try your hand at traditional woodworking. Feel the warmth of the wooden tools and the satisfaction of learning an old “new” skill.
Hand Planes & Wireless Routers” is designed to meet the needs of woodworkers, from the novice looking for an introduction to traditional hand woodworking skills to the advanced woodworker. The Spring 2009 six-week session runs Saturdays, 9:00 am-12:00 pm, March 7-April 11, with a make up session on April 18. The fee is $60 for members and $70 for non-members, with a discounted student rate of $40.
