Note: I added the first part of the book title, which I left out earlier.
Where would you find a $1 working plane, and a new book titled “The Perfect Edge, The Ultimate Guide to Sharpening for Woodworkers”, by Ron Hock on the same table? Answer: At Woodworking in America in Valley Forge, of course! Click on the image to enlarge:
Sandy and I had a chance to spend a little time with Ron and his wife Linda after dinner, our first night in Valley Forge. During our conversation, Ron brought up the new book currently being ready for the printer, and to be released in the next few weeks. It has been mentioned in a couple of web interviews, but that is about it. This new book will contain over 400 photographs, all taken by Ron himself! Ron, thanks for allowing me to post a stealth snapshot of the new book!
I look forward to this new book, and its contents. Although plenty has been published about sharpening, The Perfect Edge promises to be just the ticket to improving my sharpening prowess. Look for the book to hit the Popular Woodworking Store around December 2009.
Now the rest of the world knows”…the rest of the story…”
