One very nice thing about working from home, is that when it’s a slow day at the office, I can sit in front of my desk and get other things done.
A couple months of slow days and I ought to have all these irons for my Stanley 45 sharpened.
I’ve been doing a lot of this the last week or so, as time permits. On the floor behind me are my bench planes. The bevels on each began their life with me all over the place. Over time in the shop I’d never established them consistent – just went with the bevel that was already there. I’d also experimented with micro-bevels along the way. I’ve put some time in getting them all consistent, and polishing the backs. Ditto for my chisels.
I always thought I was very detail oriented (if open to experimentation) about this stuff in the shop. There’s something about sitting down at a desk though: my sharpening was much more focused. Guess the end goal was the sharpening itself, rather than the wood work.
Decent way to pass the time while staring at the computer screens, waiting for the next job.
PS: The real point of this post is to give the camera a quick test run. Got the batteries, charger, and a new SD card today. I hope to be sharing photos of a lot of the tools and stuff I’ve salvaged from the outbuildings on the property soon.
