Drawings are done on 3 sides, blank is secure on jig and jig to table (you will have to take my word on this, the pics were atrocious…..), my tools have been selected. Finishing commissioning an old Addis #4 3/4” gouge I purchased some months ago ( it was in bad shape, rounded bevel, uneven cutting edge and surface rust. Fortunately I have learned how to sharpen correctly and love to do it!), just some time on the Arkansas stone and some stropping to go and it’s carvin’ time!!!
