Step-by-step expert instructions and visual aids teach woodworkers the characteristics of steel, carbide, and ceramic while showing how to sharpen any device, from planes, chisels, cabinet scrapers, and drill and router bits to saws, axes, knives, and turning and carving tools. Readers will benefit from a detailed discussion on the four types of bench stones as well as a thorough resource of websites and contact information. An additional chapter presenting a peeknbsp;at the sharpening setups of some of America’s best professional woodworkers—including James Krenov, Sam Maloof, and David Marks—is also provided.
