A big thanks to Woodshaver for posting his a while back and for sharing his info. I started these late last fall. Once the cold weather came I was finished in the shop (no heat in there). So now that I’m out of hibernation I finished these just in time to sharpen up my planer blades. Made from Red Oak. Holes are tapped out for metric set screws. Here is a link to Woodshaver's. He has all the info on using these on his project page, but if you have any questions I’d be glad to answer. Also thought I would add that I’m using glass with spray adhesive and sandpaper to sharpen the knives with these jigs.

Nice job on your jigs Kevin! Glad I could help!
You must be thrilled to be getting out of hibernation and into your shop after a long winter.

Kevin, finally out of woodworking hibernation. You must have started going through withdrawal.

Nice work on the blade sharpeners. Now you can get down to some serious woodworking.

Kevin, built one of these a couple months ago. Yes cost is like nothing and the results are great. I do a lot of hickory work and they get dull sooner than you want them to. I made mine in a hurry cause I needed it but yours are a lot nicer looking. Sure beats paying to get the sharpened. Thanks for the post.
