Very nice. The granite is a great idea. Beats the heck out of the old cookie sheet that I put my stones on so I don’t get my bench wet.

With regards to the scrap granite idea. In our area, we have a Habitat for Humanity thrift store. They sell mostly donated construction materials. I noticed that they had small pieces of granite in there a while back. If you have one of those stores in your area, it might be worth checking out.

The “Restore” store is the Habitat for Humanity store that You are talking about. I posted on another forum about router tables tops that are made in some way. I have been going to ours here in Holland, and came out with some good ideas. By the way, Very nice sharpening station, James.

Love the station, looking into the granite tops, and was wondering if 2” was a little much. From what I understand most kitchens are 3/4”. Any thoughts?
