Aimed at those new to saw sharpening, this instructional video is 2 1/4 hours long and covers the theory, the tools and the practice of sharpening western saws. You get to look over my shoulder as I sharpen four saws – two backsaws and two hand saws. I’ll explain the saw sharpening process and how you apply it to different scenarios.

With the number of tentatives, and number of cancelations, I knew we’d had less people that I had originally planned for this morning, which was fine, but as high-noon approached, I was pleasantly surprised to see on top of the definite-be-theres, a good presence of LJ’s I did not know had planned to come – that was awesome! All in all we had counted 8 (+1) Lumberjocks (with Daniel’s Wife being the +1 – definitely a +!) it was really nice she came): Spe...

Police were powerless to stop the lo...
