I’m very happy my diamond stones arrived!

I quickly honed a chisel just to see… Wow! That’s what sharp means! Already happy!

Now I’m cutting pockets in the support board for the stones:

One down, 3 to go!

-- I do this for fun.

What stones did you get? I’m looking to do the same thing as you.

Nice sharpening stones.

Are you routing the pockets? Or are you cutting through the board and sandwiching it with a backing board?

Have your say...
