Sharp tools are essential for working wood. Hand tools are relatively easy to sharpen in your shop. But tablesaw blades, jointer knives, planer knives, and router bits are best sharpened by a professional.

To help you track down a sharpening service, we’ve compiled a list recommended by members of our Knots forum and others discovered through our research. To recommend a sharpening service for our list or to make changes to an existing listing, email fw@taunton.com.
