Skew Chisel - how do you sharpen yours?

Joe in a Cleveland suburb
>Hi,

Can you tell me how you sharpen your skew chisels? What procedure and tools do you use?

Do you grind, sharpen, and hone the same as you do your nice plane irons or is that sharp not necessary? The goal is to have a skew ready/sharp for use on some cherry legs.

I've been practicing on pine scrap. Now I think I should think harder about the sharpening end of it.

Thanks,
Joe
