About the Instructor

Glenn (glenn.della-monica@makeitlabs.com) has been working with wood and metal for over 40 years as a hobbyist. He was trained as the gunsmith for the volunteer Living History Program at Sutter’s Fort State Historical Park in California. He used 1840s techniques to work metal and wood, and period techniques for sharpening. Since he discovered electricity, he has been an advocate of electric sharpening methods as well as manual ones. He likes puttering around and fooling with gadgets, some of which may even be useful. He likes sharp tools, as they are easier to use, more accurate and safer.
