Re: baseball and dovetails

You know, when I watched Sellers hone his chisels on his woodblock/ leather strop. it DID look as if he was creating a convex bevel. I figured, being who he is, that he knew how not to create a bevel. But I was suspicious. Or maybe he prefers it convex. There is a well-known wood turner from Israel ( can't remember his name) who likes convex bevels on his skew chisels. I've tried that for turning; it worked alright. Nothing that special though.

I guess my question has to be: if Paul Sellers is rounding over his chisels and getting a too-steep angle, how does he do so well?
