    "Live edge lumber" musings

    Thread Starter: Jon Grider

    Anybody Use Arkansas Stones for Sharpening Planes/Chisels

    Thread Starter: JohnM Martin

    I know its the age of diamonds and waterstones, but just curious if there is anyone out there using Arkansas stones for sharpening plane irons and chisels.
