I thought I would post a few videos this morning. The first is sharpening a chisel, using Paul’s method. It is simple, quick, and very effective. It produces a convex bevel that is as sharp as anything, but substantially stronger than any other. That strength is very helpful when performing any number of tasks, and has proven invaluable during this course.
The second video is just a collection of photographs, showing how I shaped the curved backs for the rocking chair. I started with squared lumber, and ended with the curved rails. I used a chisel, spoke shave, card scraper, and my #4 bench plane… nothing more.
It’s back to work tomorrow!
