How to sharpen Forstner bits

Board with sanding paper tore up on it.

We dulled our bits first.

You'd never bore through sandpaper as we did to quickly dull the bits for this slideshow, but some woods, such as cedar, contain silicates that have a similar, albeit slower, dulling effect.

For people who want to make copies of these tips.... There is free software called "Cute PDF Writer", google it. You copy and paste the article in a text/word document and then print, but you change the printer setting from your printer to "CutePDFWriter" and give the file a name. It will then be saved into a folder and file that you designate as a PDF file. It's a nice program!
