Decided to make a tray for my new/old stone.

I used a piece of oak pallet wood and chiseled out a space for the stone to nest in.
I used my old hand router to flatten the bottom.
I added barbs to the bottom so it doesn’t slide and I don’t need to clamp it to the bench.

I have been using 3in1 oil on my old junk stones.
Any ideas on the best oil to use for this stone? It has never been used.

Nice tray. I’m not sure which I like more, the tray or the stone. They are both very cool. I have always used 3 in 1 myself, not sure what your options might be.

I have been doing a little research and I will probably start with a lighter machine oil or mineral oil and just see how it works.
Now I am looking for a couple harder arkansas stones.
