This class will be hosted by Bastionhead woodworks and is a variation of the “Obey the Grain”

Use an eclectic mix of techniques and starting materials to create weapons and tools drawing inspiration from the Medieval period.  Key ideas will include reading wood to exploit its strength, basic heat treating of steels, task specific sharpening, and joining wood to metal.  Think: longbow, war hammer, spear, mace, dagger, etc.  Participants with adequate experience are encouraged to tackle more complex projects, time allowing.
