At last! Tool Sharpening Tips Make Sense!

Thanks to Bruce Alexander for forwarding the November 2009 Newsletter from Chris Pye. It was a real treat to read his comments on tool sharpening--since I have been forever trying to preach "You don't sharpen the edge; you sharpen the bevel."

Chris is devoted to teaching the art of woodcarving and his web site has a lot to offer for anyone interested learning to carve. (Click on the Chris Pye link in the Links Section to the right!)
