Hello All,

I worked on the base for my router table push stick. I chiseled out a by best mortise yet. I am very pleased with how it looks.

There is a picture.

There was a question posted on the site about the type of chisel I used and how I sharpened it.

For that mortise I started by sharpening it on my King 1000/6000 stone. I practice sharpening a lot, so my few chisels never really get dull. I have started to practice sharpening without the guide and I am getting ok doing it free hand now. The mortise in the picture was cut entirely with a 1 1/4 inch (32 mm) Yellow handled Stanley. It was inexpensive and great for a beginner who wants to learn how to sharpen.
