    Are there any lessons for sharpening tools? I have a small set of chip carving tools ( flex cut) and one of the tools I am unable to sharpen. I am using DMT abrasive plates up to 8000 and no matter what I do, I am unable to get an edge.
    Thank you,
    Robert Peterson

      Hi Robert,
      I do have a lesson on sharpening, but only curved gouges and v-chisels. Since I don't use carving knives, I don't really teach that. I am sure you can find youtube videos on sharpening knives. Check out https://mychipcarving.com/ and I'm sure he has lessons on sharpening.

    Hi Mary. What is the smallest font you would reccommend for carved letters?

      Hi Imran,
      I would say anything can be carved but it can get extremely challenging getting micro tools (or challenging to actually see the letters). I probably wouldn't carve anything smaller than 1/2 inch to be able to get good, clean edges.

    I have trouble sharpening chisel with the bevel getting rounded with sharpening.. Would a Tormek ten inch wheel creat a hollow grind that the two edges will be on plane and not rounded?

      Hi Martin,
      A tormek certainly could create a hollow grind. But before you spend money on that, try sharpening it on a diamond stone and make sure each time you position it on the stone, make sure it hits the same angle each time. Make sure you lock your wrist and arm so the angle stays consistent. Have you watched my video on sharpening a curved gouge?
