Basics Lecture 2 - Bench & Hand Tools – 19-1

Instructor – Jeff Zens

Jeff is a regional woodworking instructor and the co-author and a primary instructor with "Woodworking at the Next Level", the Guild's wildly successful hand tool-based series of woodworking classes. He offers private instruction in his shop in Salem, Oregon, where he designs and builds custom pieces for clients throughout the Pacific Northwest.

The second lecture of the Basics series explores the different hand planes, measuring and layout tools, saws and chisels that make up the basic bench tool kit. Jeff will show you how each is used and talk about  their care and maintenance and sharpening.  Bring your questions and any hand tools that you'd like to talk about! 

This one of seven Basics Lecture classes offered to beginner level woodworkers. We recommend that you take any of these classes you feel you need in any order that fits your schedule. 

Please contact Doug Drake at with questions.
