Sharpening Woodturning Tools

Doug Thompson of Thompson Lathe Tools demonstrates how he sharpens Bowl Gouges, Spindle Gouges, Detail Gouges, and Scrapers. Along with showing how he sharpens, Doug explains what he believes woodturners should be using for grinders and jigs. He also offers tips for correcting improperly ground gouges and how to go to a friends house and sharpen your tools without offending your host and their grinding setup.
