Really useful and well done. Thank you.
Thanks for posting this great video series from a favorite teacher. Was there a FW article on Bob Van Dyke’s sharpening box? As he notes, making flattening and sharpening handy are keys to doing it.
Loved the video series! I too am curios if there is an article or notes on the sharpening box?
