This is a shortened version of my "Honing - How to get a really sharp edge in under 30 seconds" video which I must admit is quite long. If you want detail on honing media and the principles of sharpening the long version is for you, if your attention is short then this is probably better.

How to flatten water and oil stones

In another video I show how to flatten the back of plane irons and chisels. All the work of flattening is wasted if your stones aren’t flat, as a dip in a stone will be transferred to the blade back when honing. In this video I show the technique for stone flattening. Of course this only applies to water and oil stones if you have diamond stones or the like don’t bother watching this video!

Sharp tools are the basis of the craft and sharpening technique is a frequent topic of argument among woodworkers. I believe sharpening should be done as quickly as possible so you can get back to working wood. It is also better for your tools as you will see in this video.
