I need a better way to sharpen my bowl gouges. Printed out a template of parts I found online and made this. Based on the “Vari-grind” design. Waiting on some glue to dry before trying it out.

That looks like it'll work fine. :thumb: The key to using that type of jig is to always have the same amount of gouge sticking out each time you use it, and to have the base/receiving socket the same distance from the grinding wheel. That type of jig makes it a lot easier to have the wings swept back into more of a fingernail/Irish grind , too.
