Make a Knife or Adze

For the Zoom Link CLICK HERE


Scot Lang will show how to make a knife from a common jig saw blade, and Jim Bergeron will moderate his video about making an adze from an old file.  These topics will open your eyes about taking control of your own tools and their handles, an empowering step for beginners and experienced alike.

Scot has been carving for decades.  He has broad interests and making knives is just one aspect. He has been president of the Central Coast Woodcarvers club near Morro Bay, California 20 years and has seen and experienced a lot.  Learn about knife making; pick his brain.

Jim Bergeron lives near Astoria and has been carving in the tradition of the NW Coast for over 40 years.  He loves making his own tools and has documented how everyone can make their own adze.  You might not need an adze now, but you will likely find the process fascinating.  We will show his 40 minute video of the process along with background information.  He and his daughter Rosie will be here to answer questions and show examples of his work.

Gather with other carvers at the Guild Studio for the Zoom presentation or join us virtually.  If you join in-person, you must have proof of vaccination (its their policy) on record at the Guild of Oregon Woodworkers or show proof upon entering.

Please register so we can notify you of any changes and send you a reminder link.
