Woodworking from Home with Adam Godet: Sharpening Your Tools
Old timer woodworkers told me sharp fixes everything and I think they’re right. While a quality and well-maintained tool is key to success...sharp will save the day. Sharper tools are actually safer to use as well. In this class master woodworker and Maker Neighbor Adam Godet will cover how to grind and hone your blades for basic woodworking.
Tools required if you want to follow along:
A flat blade of any kind. I’ll cover chisels and plane blades. If you have a sharpening stone, Excellent! If not, you’ll need a dead flat surface (a smooth tile works well), some sandpaper (grades 80, 180, 220 or close) and 1000 grit wet dry paper. Or you can follow along and watch the recording later at your own pace.
