Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum announces plane-making workshop in St. Michaels

. February 1, 2019

On Tuesday, Feb. 19 and continuing Thursday, Feb. 21, the Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum is offering a Krenov-style plane-making workshop that runs from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. each evening, with each participant going home at the end of the workshop with a working hand plane they built.

Participants will join Shipyard Manager Michael Gorman to learn the parts of the plane while working through the sequencing of cutting pieces, gluing them up, shaping the plane to fit each participant, tuning the throat and sharpening the blade.

Materials and tools will be provided, with each participant taking home their newly created working plane. Class size is limited, and is $175 per participant, with a 20% discount for CBMM members. Advanced registration and more information are at
