Sharpening your Chisels

When reversing a patio door you have to cut new hinge holes. You want to make sure your wood chisel is is really sharp so a clean cut can be made without any splintering around the brass door hinges. Sharpening a chisel is easy to do as my father-in-law Larry demonstrates below. He's also got a nice demo of trying to kick in the newly installed door kick plate ;-)
