  • The Complete Guide to Sharpening
You know how frustrating it is to work wood with tools that are dull. All that is over. Tool expert Leonard Lee has consolidated a lifetime of study of sharpening methods, techniques, and devices into the most practical reference on the subject. You'll discover the most effective ways to sharpen your tools -- from chisels to drill bits. You'll get better edges than on most razor blades, and you'll learn how to shape them to cut better and stay sharp longer. In fact, Lee's simple principles and some basic equipment wil allow you to sharpen any woodworking tool you are likely to encounter.

'The list of tools Lee discusses is thorough...Each treatment covers the basics and whatever variations on the theme woodworkers are likely to encounter in their shops.'
