I find it curious..... ()

Wiley Horne--So. Calif.
I go by feel of the plane in the wood. When the iron is sharp, the plane pulls itself into the wood. I can feel in a stroke whether this is happening. When the plane is no longer pulling itself into the wood, I watch for a stopping place to sharpen. It melds into the rhythm of the work.

Like Hank, I enjoy sharpening.
