Mow your lawn (or harvest your backyard grain crop) the old-fashioned way.  When done properly, scythes can work as efficiently as a weed wacker (watch a great video here).  Scythes must be sized to the operator, and this is your chance to make your own custom-fit scythe with woodworker Steve Habersetzer.   Lots of fun!

Part A - Scythe Construction.  This includes making a handle (snathe) for a scythe and creating a personal scythe outfit with everything needed for scything: blade, peening jig, sharpening stone, and stone holster :: $95 + $175 materials fee

Part B - Scythe Proficiency.  Steve will cover a variety sharpening, peening, mowing techniques and choosing the right scythe technique for your application.  The class has ample time for hands-on mowing with feedback from someone who has mowed his orchard with scythe for over 30 years. :: $95

Part A&B- combine the two parts for greater discount :: $350
