*And*, there's video.
So there. :)
I've only squared up the mortises on one leg so far (no pics yet). To my
delight (and relief), the corner chisel is making short work of the task.
standard physics in my garage. Don't even get me started on the
singularity that makes small parts vanish when I drop them.
On a related note, I decided to try to make myself a sharpening stick
for the corner chisel. I didn't have any popsicle sticks handy, so I
asked my wife for a worn-out emery board. It's about 7/8" wide and 7"
long. It's thin but pretty rigid. I used spray adhesive to affix 600
grit sandpaper to one side and 1000 grit to the other. I haven't tried
it yet, but I assume I'll just make a couple of light passes over the
secondary bevel; the chisel is still very sharp.
Get an aluminum extrusion that has a sharp 90 degree corner.
A 3/4" x 3/4" x 1/16" x 96" angle cut to a short length would work
but would be a tad pricey unless you can get a shorter length.
Attach a piece of 600 grit with rubber cement and you are good to go.
A trip to the scrap yard might be in order.
After all, the only thing need is a sharp corner.
The reason you want a 90 degree sharp corner is so that
ONLY ONE CUTTING SURFACE at a time gets polished with
the 600 grit.
The sharp corner insures that you get to the bottom of the
cutting tool, but only the one side.
If you want to polish both surfaces at the same time you will get
a lesson in "can't get their from here".
Sorry for any confusion.
BTW, you glue the 600 grit to only one leg of the angle.

Good God, when will it stop! ;-)
