Shop maintenance is one of those things you gotta do. The saws need to be aligned, the tools organized and the sawdust swept up. And, you know that the tools need to be sharpened.
Sharpening is a task that some people relish. They pull their tools off the sharpening medium and look at their handiwork with glee. They even demonstrate just how sharp their edges are by shaving the hair off their arms, legs or other body parts.
Others know it has to be done, but they dread the work. I mean, it time spend grinding steel off the edges of tools, not working with wood. Isn’t working with wood why we got into this craft?
Today, tell us how you feel about sharpening. Are you all jazzed about doing it, hate it, or feel indifferent about the whole process?

As I get better as sharpening, it becomes less of a pain in the butt.
And really sharp tools are a joy to use.
It makes all other woodworking easier and more enjoyable. Also I cheat. I’ve found and love my work sharp.
