It all depends on what ya got and how handy ya are. If you have a slow speed grinder and a Wolverine jig that's easy. I have used sandpaper on a piece of glass, a small drum sander on a drill press and a file and a diamond hone. Your objective should be to maintain your bevel and sharpen your edge. If you let us know what kind of gouge you have and what you have for sharpening devices we can go from there.

We will harvest no burl before it's time.....
