Sample text

Indd 37 Sharpen the Bevel Now you’re ready to sharpen the bevel. To get it right you need to perfect some body mechanics – just like perfecting your golf swing. Once perfected, you’ll be able to use the side-sharpening technique to master freehand sharpening without years of practice. First, I hold the blade in my right hand in a loose grip at the tips of my fingers, with the tips spread around the blade – as if I’m imitating a spider. My left hand is laid flat on the back of the plane blade, parallel to the edge.

Of course the curved blade needs to be well centered in the plane for all of these techniques and I will be describing my method later in this chapter. The second powerful argument for a curved blade is that you will not leave whiskery tracks (sometimes called “steps”) from the corner of the blade when you plane across a wide surface. The surfaces you leave will be minutely scalloped in their width, but the depth of these depressions is small indeed and they can be removed easily by sanding if desired.

As you finish with the last grit, make one final short and light jointing pass on the edge of the blade, barely kissing the stone, to remove the last bit of tooth. Once you’ve flattened your blade (once), and become comfortable with the side sharpening process, it should take you no more than three to five minutes to put a new sharp edge on your plane blade. So little time – yet you’ll get your plane cutting thin wispy shavings every time! To remove the burr, run the back of the blade flat along the polishing stone (#16,000 grit) lengthwise a few times.
