How do you sharpen your plane irons and chisels - 30 replies

Has anyone used the Incra Universal Positioning Jig on their Router table yet? Shop Smith had a great review on them in this issue and I’m bitting at the bit to order one. Just wonder how difficult they are to master. Any suggestions/comments?

Here are a few more of my recent projects. The bowls and vase were made using my Ringmaster – the Bloodwood heart box was made on the bandsaw and the picture frame was, well you all know how that was made. It’s Maple and Cocobolo. Any comments or advice will be appreciated.

Just wanted to post my first carving project. It’s a small plaque that I carved for my wife (she collects elephants – I was her very first). I wish that I could take credit for carving by hand, but I actually used my Carve Wright machine – which I am still learning.
