    I’m in Michigan with high humidity in the summer. Like Jim, I run a dehumidifier all summer in the shop, and made an oil pot. Everything gets a swipe of oil after every use.

    Nice job, Rob. I didn’t jump in to the sharpening discussion, because I have no experience...but wanted to say the spoon looks fantastic. I’d say you got it figured out.
