    Been there, done that. Well not exactly that, but similar things. Many times. My hope is that practice will eventually make the cut second nature and free up some brain capacity for the bigger picture.

    But your mistake is not really a mistake. You made a servicable shooting board. Just pretend it was intentional and put it on e-bay as “rare shooting board for left-handed” 🙂

    Very nice. Thanks for sharing Greg. Did you all notice how he established the knife wall at 3:38. Pretty neat technique.

    Thanks for comments. Yes, it is deceptively simple. Every cut and angle has to be just right or you end up having to do a lot of fixing afterwards just to make it come together at all. But I did learn a lot, not the least from my mistakes.

    That kind of gross “imperfections” of the sole you long ago left anything I would call decent quality. Clearly not acceptable.

    Like it already. Much easier to access some of the videos that used to be at the bottom of the drop-down menu which had a tendency to “drop-up” before I had clicked on the video I wanted to watch. Thank you for your efforts!

    Nice gift! I have one and I am happy with it. It is a quality product and you get razor sharp edges. But, I have shifted to using Paul’s method for regular chisels and plane plades for two reasons; I have come to love the convex bevel (it’s brilliant on chisels), and Paul’s method if faster (less set up time). I still use the Tormek for more complex shapes, but I am intent on mastering gauge sharpening by hand because again i think the convex bevel would be better. I hear the Tormek excells at sharpening turning gauges I have no personal experience.

    John, I suspected dry might be a problem – and just the sheer size of the trunk.

    Thanks David for the suggestion. I will look at logosol. I know there are mobile lumber mills around here, but I wonder if they are bog enough.

    Your DMT and Bester stones seem roughly equivalent so I see no point in using both. As för the DMT extra extra fine I have never tried it, but if you are stropping I do not think you need it. Stropping should give you an edge over xx-fine (pun).

    Handling on airports is very rough. Don’t think a standard wooden chest would hold up to the abuse for very long. Iron clad corners and reinforcements perhaps? Tools in carry-on bags aren’t popular these days, and will be confiscated unless you happen upon the same woman security officer I once did. Visiting Canada I filled my bag with tools I picked up at Lee Valley. Discovering I was over weight I had to put some heavy items in my carry-on luggage – a Veritas hold-fast and two brass bench dogs to be exact. Passed through security in Canada with no problem but got stopped at Heathrow. After having explained what the items were to the security staff at Heathrow the woman in charge simply said: “Can’t separate a man from his tools” and let me pass with tools.
