    What are the underappreciated shop tool/supplies in your shop?

    Thread Starter: Mike Allen1010

    Like many hand tool woodworker's I obsess about all my cutting tools – need to have all the appropriate types and ensure their super sharp. However, there are some seemingly "pedestrian" things that are essential in my shop: Sandpaper: I confess I have a snobby preference for "hand planed"...

    Having tools delivered by freight truck?

    Thread Starter: Travis Conner

I know a lot of those third...

    Sharpening Mortise Chisels

    Thread Starter: Thomas McCurnin

    In advance of a hand tool joinery class, I will be expected to use and sharpen chisels. No problem with bench chisels, I have taken a sharpening class and bench chisels fit nicely into my Veritas MKII honing guide. But to my surprise, a mortise chisel is too thick to fit into the MKII. So...
