It’s not all building and crafting! There are a wide variety of tools used in hand-crafted woodworking, and most of them have sharp edges. And so for every day that I spend axing and adzing and draw-knifing and gouging and planing, you can bet there are some hours of sharpening in my future!

While it’s not considered the most exciting part of woodworking, it’s got its own quiet rhythm, and its own sense of satisfaction in creating that perfectly sharp edge that is going to make the next day of woodworking so enjoyable, and is going to give the next hand-crafted item that remarkably smooth hand-cut finish.
