Skill Sets: Tool Sharpening
Reviewed by Ben R. on 5/21/2018
I ended up switching into the dovetail class instead of taking the tool sharpening class, but Glen was more than happy to teach tool sharpening skills to another student and me before the dovetail class started. This was my second class taught by Glen (the first was a utensil shaping class), and I hope to take more. He has a lot to teach, and he's eager to share as much of his knowledge and skillset as he can. He's quite a talented artist as well as teacher, and taking his classes is both enjoyable and informative. He mentioned preferring teaching without grades, but I give him an A+ without a second thought.
