Workshop sharpening station
near 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 on the different types of tools.
I start by soaking the stones, so they will be ready for the job.
Then it’s just to choose the right stone and sharpen.
Also fine for a quick touch up with a loaded strop.
Especially when I do paring I want that razor sharp edge.
The edge can’t be to sharp and the edge defines the tool.
