>The last meeting of the Beaver State Woodturners (Eugene, OR) was a demonstration of the skew chisel by a local turner. She does a lot of restoration on old furniture pieces. When I asked her how she sharpened her skew, she replied that she was self taught, and that she used a grinder that had 5 inch 100 grit wheels. No honing, or other refinements. Her cuts were as smooth and clean as any that I have ever seen. Not what I was taught, but can't argue with the results.
