Flatten Water Stones
I really enjoy the feedback that sharpening on water stones provides. It makes for an enjoyable sharpening experience.
If you're sharpening your woodworking tools, such as chisels and plane irons, on a water stone, make sure you're regularly flattening your stone.
Chisels and plane irons tend to work best with very flat grinds, so regularly checking your water stones for flatness will improve your sharpening efforts.
