Letter Carving and letter carving tools sharpening

I’ve been practicing my letter and relief carving and attempting to improve my skills.  A few folks have asked me to explain how I sharpen my chisels.  

Here is how I sharpen my flat bevel letter carving chisels.

Chisel roll was made by Jason Thigpen at Texas Heritage Woodworks. Letter carving chisel is Auriou.

    Nice post! Was this the technique they taught at the class you took in Waco?

      No, I figured out the jig part myself. My friend Ananda is really the one that taught how to sharpen my carving chisels.

      The carving,however, I did learn in class 🙂
