The wood really wasn’t being nice to me, today. I was dressing some old jarrah with a scrub plane, and it just wasn’t cutting the mustard or the wood. Of course, it simply wasn’t sharp:
That shiny bit in the middle isn’t a trick of the light, it’s bluntiness.
However, I have no grinder, and this blade needs a fair bit taken off, so I’m giving up for the day…

Or be tricky and build something like this:
The trouble with that latter is that it’s pretty impossible to find the stone for such a thing! Otherwise, would be brilliant.
Ah well… I’ll keep honing that blade…
