    Just about the same here but I could not bring myself to remove the old nail they used as a pin. This is true reflection of the times ....history.

    More wood (and my feet lol!):
    Stabilized Madrone Burl on the right; Stabilized Bookmatched Birdseye Black Cherry Burl on the left-this one really interests me! Both were flattened and sanded up to 220, and shine like glass.

    He also sent me home with his entire old vacum tank for stabilizing, pump and accessories in exchange for some forging stuff we don't use. Now if I can get my son and his boss who runs a tree company two doors down to save me some of the beautiful burls they cut down every day, I might be in business.

    I made a couple of boxes for my Barber Hones. Why? Because I had the wood lying around and had a little time. Why not.

    Light colored stain and two coats of clear. Poplar wood. Getting practiced up for the exotic wood boxes I want to make for my Jnats.

    I see why that wood is poplar.
    Nice boxes Jerry.

    Very nice Jerry.

    How did you hollow the boxes out? I an working on learning to sharpen chisels and then using them to make the boxes for the hones.

    I am very interested in putting end grain wood blocks at the ends of the hone in the box so I could sharpen off the end of the hone.

    I put a good rise at the end of my 220 Norton shaping the bevel on just one chisel and stopping before I got to the end.

    Tim, i cheated when it comes to the way you do it. Router. I clamp the board to a table and clamp another board for a straight edge to run against. It takes a little effort moving and clamping but im now getting nice cutouts.

    If i was making more than one id make a jig.

    Unless you are doing an odd shaped Jnat.

    You got a point. I think I will make a jig for that one. We will see.
