I took a sharpening class at the Birmingham Woodcraft store a while back.
I really didn’t know it then, but that class really has opened up my woodworking world.
My projects are getting more involved and really more fun because I now have very sharp tools. If you have never had a sharpening class, you should make it your priority.
I would have gotten into the woodturning world and stayed there about 10 minutes without sharp tools. Plane irons and chisels just about cut through the wood on their own. I now have these little curly things all over my shop and when I sweep the shop, I leave a few in strategic places. You know, to impress my WW friends and clients.
I hope you will get to a class soon.
By the way, this is not an advertisement for Woodcraft. I just took my class there and was very pleased. I am sure any sharpening class would be helpful to you in your woodworking.
