Unicorn Profile it is
Response To:
Unicorn profile... ()

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
I agree it is only reasonable that the inventor has naming rights. Hence, I yield to the Unicorn Profile.

The added benefit is someone is apt to see the term and be tempted to find an answer to the question, what the hell is that all about?

Against all advice I don't sharpen when I need to but rather at the end of a project or at least at the conclusion of a large step. I'll be giving the Corian substrate (needs a name) method a workout soon as the desk is near done.

BTW, I did sharpen planes before doing drawer sides. I went nuts setting the cap iron close. I was barely strong enough to push up a 2" shaving. I got to thinking what a massive force was being applied through the shaving and onto the surface of the wood at the blade tip. ( I backed it off some as the shaving was buckling)
