Detailed Description

Plane Sharpening with David Charlesworth DVD

David Charlesworth has taught woodworking since 1973 and is widely respected in England as a writer for Furniture & Cabinetmaking Magazine.. His specialty is getting the most out of hand tools in precise and original ways.

This video is an updated version of David's first DVD on Plane Sharpening, originally released in 2004. Filmed at his shop in Devon, England, this new version includes new material on David's simple techniques for sharpening plane blades, preparing the front edge of chipbreakers, and precise cambering. With two waterstones, a honing guide, and a little practice, you can get razor sharp results in minutes.
