Summer made a come back after the record breaking – 16 C (3.2 F) temperature last Monday – the weekend was 14 C (57 F). I spent an afternoon finishing a few projects including this shop-made sharpening jig for my spindle and bowl gouges. You can use it with the Wolverine Vee pocket or simply make your own V- pocket. All you need are: T nuts, bolts, scarp wood, washers, wing nut,and two stripes of friction tapes. I’ll replace the carriage bolt once I get my hand on a better knob.
I tried the jig with a cheap spindle gouge before I used it on my regular gouges.
