Hand Tool Repair & Restoration

April 9, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

- $25

Is it vintage or antique, a family heirloom or piece of wall art; or maybe something you want to bring back to life? Learn how to repair, restore and use the kitchen, garden and woodworking hand tools designed and used by our grandparents. This has been one of Peter’s summer hobbies trolling yard sales and antique shops to find gardening or woodworking tools to restore in the winter months. This class will provide information on hand tool identification and dating, the tools and materials needed for restoration, steps in the process, and the importance of on-line research. Students can bring something they might want to try restoring, along with their questions.
