Getting setup for the Sharpening Workshop at Barb's Barn on a cold, rainy Sunday morning in November

The students begin to arrive for the 9am start as Kurt finishes setting up

The instructor for the sharpening class was Kurt Hertzog

With 3 last minute cancellations, we had 8 students for the day's session

Most of the morning was lecture and demonstration, here explaining the impact of wheel diameter selection

Throughout the morning, Kurt demonstrated equipment and jig setup as well as grinding techniques on various tools

At noon, everyone breaks for lunch and the famous Barb's dessert cake

After a short lunch, it's time for the student's to practice what they've learned

Pembroke Woodturners Guild member, Gary Geiser works on his tools

Turners 2 member, John O'Neil sharpens a skew chisel

Turners 1 member, Carm Queeno and Lockport club member Pat Gettings work at the back bench

Tim Queeno, one of Carm's sons, works at the front bench

Lockport members, Ted Borkowksi and Ed Serfin work on shaping and then sharpening their tools

With how the tool cuts being the acid test, Carm Queeno tests his newly sharpening roughing gouge

Ed Serafin tries one of his with Kurt looking on and Ted Borkowski waiting his turn

With the day winding down, Kurt gives a few last minute tips and tricks

Here he grinds and sands the sharp corners found on most tools allowing it to travel smoothly across the rest

Kurt demos using a skew as a scraper to fare surfaces together smoothly

Everyone pitches in on cleanup with Turners 2 member, Jay Ferrand finishing up with the vacuum

As everyone heads home in the late afternoon, the sun breaks out from the clouds to finish a good day at Barb's Barn
