So here the new shop setup, all the tool right at hand. Sharpening station with the pond and gear right at hand.In the cabinet I keep all the different stones, jigs, oils and what else is needed for obtaining that sweet edge...

Sharpening station waterstones #4: Workshop sharpening station now

11-20-2016 10:26 PM by mafe | 12 comments »

Workshop sharpening stationnow Some time back I posted a blog about my sharpening station, as with everything in my life, this station is a work in progress and so I thought it was time to post an update on how it looks after it has been in use for a while, since things tend to change from thought to use. It is still placed right next to the workbench, this is for me the good spot, I can use the bench for extra space and I can make a quick touch up on a dull edge or just a hone to keep ...

New Shop in the Raw #9: Hand Tool Storage/Sharpening Station

03-06-2016 10:02 PM by builtinbkyn | 23 comments »

With the workbench complete, it’s time to make some kind of storage system for the hand tools I’ll be using on the bench. I’ve amassed a small collection of older Stanley planes, a couple of LN block planes, a few chisels of different varieties and various other tools that I’d like to have readily accessible from the bench. I’ve chosen to make a stand that will sit next to the bench. The design is still not solidified, but I did start on the section dedicated ...

Up to now they have all been sitting on the bench or where ever else they wouldn’t be in the way. My goal is to have them all inset into a piece of plywood so they will always be together and accessible. ...

Sharpening station wet grinder (Thormek, Sheppac, Jet, whatever). #3: Dedicated area for the sharpening station

09-03-2011 09:26 PM by mafe | 13 comments »

Dedicated area for the sharpening stationfinally a dedicated area in the shop… Never too late! The more woodworking I do the more I realize that half the work is sharp irons.And I was really tired to have the water grinder, water and sharpening gear all over the place, so even my shop is really small, I decided to dedicate a little area to sharpening.It’s right behind my workbench, so I will need only to turn around to touch up an iron. First step is to cut up some waterp...

Getting Creative with Little Space

02-08-2008 12:12 PM by Eric | 9 comments »

I’m glad that I had a sharpening session directly on my temporary workbench, before I finished (or even started, ahem) my “real” bench. After a while, the water and slurry started to fly, and the amount that sloshed over my simple little sharpening stone base would have given me a fit over my nice workbench surface. Time for a dedicated sharpening station. But with a 6×8 shop, I’m hesitant to “dedicate” space for anything outside of my bench. Fortun...
