Stick makes a good point. I'm a diamond block for sharplening kind of guy, and rarely need more than half a dozen strokes to keep irons and chisels razor sharp. But it would certainly shave a little wood off the jig with every stroke. But I do give Woodsmith credit for posting some really basic ideas and methods. Their beginner videos emphasize the most basic tools rather than fancy tools and accessories. Their current TV series is going back to basics once again. A cycle that repeats every four years or so. However, I wish they wouldn't cut out middle steps in a process. Need to watch with the mouse working the pause/play button to really follow it.
The more I do, the less I accomplish.
