I had also been working on my sharpening skills with a oil stone, so I used the chisel I had just been working on to cut the corners off to make it easier to get things out of the troughs. I was pretty impressed, I actually got a decent edge on it, and it worked pretty well.
I snapped a picture to show what I’m talking about.
I also learned what the knob on the fence is for.
Avoiding splinters. Ouch!
Lesson learned, don’t do that again. I was riding my hand along the wood to hold it steady. Actually, to be honest I wasn’t really paying attention where my hand was. I was focused of the cutting, and I was reminded with a nice deep splinter to keep my focus a little more on all aspects.
Anyway, once the kiddo goes to be tonight I’ll be back down there. I’ve got 16 Cigar pens to make in 2-3 weeks. Which is why today was get organized and clean my work space.
