    made my jig today from your instructions and it looks just perfect. Just starting to wood turn and my grinder comes to-morrow so here goes my attempts to sharpen wood chisels. Cheers kid.

    A very good way to sharpen your tools. The only fear I have is that if the chisel ‘digs’ in (by making the angle more acute) it could drive the tool through your body. Just an observation!

    A fingernail grind is definatly favored for its versatillity. There is some debate however that the traditional grind is better for making finishing cuts. It is certainly easier to sharpen, both will cut as quick as the other (more or less).
    It is a matter of choice really, Alex.

    wow awesome, is there any significant advantage having a finger nail over a traditional grind? i dont care it it cuts faster or slower, I want easy cheap sharpening,

    Thanks and awesome vid btw.

  11. TeenWoodworker says:

    For a fingernail grind you will need an additonal jig in order to sharpen a bowl gouge. There is another grind, which I think was the original where it is much like a spindle gouge so it would work for that. I will have a look to see if it is realistic to make another jig, Alex.

  12. TheInternalKillerXx says:

    Hi, will this work with a bowl gouge? doenst it require some other type of accesory? can you try and build one and show how its done? ;)
