very easy and cheap to build and very usefull..,sharpenig tool is about 10€ diamond200,300,600,800grit from hardware store, wood scrap is the same size litle bit longer for 2000grit waterproof sandpaper and leather with compound …,you can paste diferent 1000,2000,3000 grit woodproof sandpaper for both size but for me this is enough, other things visible in the picture…bark knife is shopmade too, from old unused, cheap sawblade and its nice sharp ..

Self taught huh? Well I was born and raised here and I was educated here and I still haven’t mastered the language …
I enjoyed your sharpening jig as well as the rotary tool personalize jig.
I really appreciate guys like you who make their own tools. ... Keep up the good work.
