Sharpening: gives me headaches just thinking about it! Not because it is difficult! It is NOT! but it is the prime example of a place where every effort to “simplify” or make it easier has resulted in More confusion and More difficulty! it started at least 150 years ago with the first Victorian era quick and easy sharpening jigs and guides. and has gone rapidly downhill. Sharpening, you should do it once a day for every tool you used that day. at the end of the day put t...

I added the Veritas MK-II honing guide and was using it for reshaping/resestting blades and honing them through the grits. While this method worked for the time I wanted s...
so just like every other woodworker at one point (what’s up with the other every other woodworkers is beyond me…) I was researching and learning about ways to sharpen my chisels, planes, and other blade tools in the shop.
