The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is hosting a tool-sharpening workshop on Tuesday, December 9 from 5-7 pm. in its boatshop. Participation is limited, with pre-registration needed.

If taken care of properly, edge tools can last generations, making well-honed tools that can cut like new every time. Participants will learn the proper preparation for sharpening and honing hand plane irons, chisels, gouges and other carving tools.

Bring your tools, sharpening stones or nothing at all, as the boat shop can provide for demonstration. The cost for the workshop is $20 for CBMM members or $30 for non-members, with pre-registration made by contacting CBMM’s Boatyard Program Manager Jenn Kuhn at 410-745-4980 or by emailing afad@cbmm.org.
