a wooden plane for sharpening plane irons, chisels, and maybe other things

Recommended Posts

Hello, I hope you might find this useful.  


I really prefer to use a blade on wood instead of sanding.  It's quicker, gives a better surface, and doesn't produce airborne dust or noise.  But this necessitates keeping the irons and chisels sharp.  Here's a link about how I do it, using a shopmade wooden plane, a granite floor tile and abrasive autobody papers (100-2000 grit), and/or an optional diamond stone.  I neglected to discuss stropping on a leather-covered board charged with abrasive compound.
