”...Mike – contractor’s paper – is that like kraft paper?...”

It is a 36in wide X 50/100ft roll of the equivalent of the old paper sack grocery bags, nice and thick. Used to keep glue and stain off of the bench and such. I bought at HD.

Of course, when not actually “using” my chisels and planes, I will do the “formal” sharpening/honing process. However, I am NOT going to STOP in the middle of every WW task to formally sharpen/hone a tool. The contractor’s paper that I have taped to the bench that I am currently using allows me to continue working without having to stop and setup for a “YouTube” style sharpening/honing session elsewhere in the shop.

Try it. You will like the results.
