The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #7: Who said Stumpy isn't very sharp?

What do you get when you combine unlimited resources with the greatest woodworking mind ever? This week Stumpy demonstrates the opposite of that… Stumpy turns his Work Sharp 3000 into a super-duper sharpening machine that works without sandpaper and accepts Tormek jigs. Then turns his sarcasm and twisted humor loose on the viewer emails. (Who knew handplanes and popcorn had so much in common…) This is part one of a 2 part sharpening series. Next week we make some fully adjus...
