You mention the file in many of your videos. If I buy my files at Lowe's or Home Depot which file should I get. Or more appropriately what files should I get for this sharpening function. Are these files the same files I would use on wood when working curved surfaces?

Sam, I too buy the files from the home center. I just look for one that is as fine a cut as possible. Although you can work wood with these files, you won't be able to remove a lot of material. If you want a better file for woodworking, I recommend the rasps from France that Lie-Nielsen sells. You may also look at tools for working wood for a nice file for filing scrapers, but again I have had just fine results from a file from Home Depot.

Frank, I just wanted to let you know I find these videos very valuable. I was using my cabinet scraper recently (on my 6th brazos rocking chair seat) and it was not working well, so I watched the sharpening a cabinet scraper video to refresh my memory. 20 minutes later, after sharpening, my cabinet scraper was working like it was new again. What a difference sharp tools make!
