Sharpen Up or Shut Up
Nothing to do with the meat of the article but here’s the argument to remember when encountering someone holding a grudge against sharpening jigs:
While honing guides are mocked by some woodworkers, don’t listen. It’s a jig to hold a cutter at a certain angle – just like a handplane is a jig to hold a cutter at a certain angle. What’s the difference? – Christopher Schwarz
I find the sharper my tools’ edges the more fun I have in the workshop.
