Hi, Just after Christmas I made my new sharpening station. I saw a project from MAFE in lumberjocks and it isnpired me. It is made of european oak, walnut, quarter sawn pine for the drawer back and quarter sawn oak for the drawer sides.The stone holder is made of ipe (I think because it was from a garden step) and the puller is made of walnut and ebony. The drawer bottom is made of plywood because it is going to be use to keep the water stones and I think Iwould have to change it very often. I would probably change the top when I find a different try to hold the water, the one I´m using know is a glass baking try. I used only hand tools as always. I hope you like it. Thanks for watching and commenting.

Wow! This is very beautiful and practical. I love the addition of the drawer to hold stones and supplies. Very clever.

Nice!!! I made something similar but much cruder than this, yours provides inspiration for version 2 :)

Thanks. Yes, the drawer was one of the important things so the stones are well storage and clean. Have fun making version 2.
