SARGE, the technique I use to sharpen my chisels is. I have a piece of glass, to it I have adhered 3 sheets of wet/dry sandpaper in the following grits. 800,1200, 2000. I also have a chisel sharpening guide I got at Woodcraft. Chisel and Plane Blade Sharpening Guide #03E42. I have heard this method called the scary sharp technique. A person could shave with this technique.
Good luck with the workbench, and hope u keep us posted.
My father was my inspiration for woodworking, wish he was still around for more advice. Luv ya Dad.
