Workshop sharpening stationnear at hand This post is from my un-posted folder. In the new workshop I placed the water grinder in a different room than the work bench.So I thought it would be nice with a close at hand sharpening station right next to the bench. 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...
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.

Over the past year I have been collecting DMT DiaSharp stones one at a time. This is what have: Extra-Extra Coarse (120x)Extra Coarse (220x)Fine (600x)Extra Fine (1200x)Extra-Extra Fine (8000x) Now that I have a full collection I decided to make a sharpening station for them.

First step is to cut up some waterp...
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...
