Still working on sharpening my tools on the way to making a dovetail project. I must say if you told me even two short years ago that I would be proud to post the following pictures – I would have rolled my eyes. Now, however, the scene changes to being able to finally post those pictures.
So here are my first real shavings with a blade that I sharpened.
The first picture is edge shavings
Here is a pile of face grain shavings.
My chisels are getting better also!
Sharper chisel——better dovetail
I still have a ways to go but I think I’m getting there.
I really appreciate all the help and tips you all have been giving me. I can see myself doing that dovetail project pretty soon.
