This project helps to build simple sink bridge for using as a base for Waterstone sharpening system. I love using sharp tools and for some time I was using Japanese Waterstones and I love it. The brand I use is the “King” and although I used much cheaper ones, I have yet to come across one that I can recommend. The problem I face while using this system is the mess that I have to clean afterwards. Another issue is to have a some kind of base that fixates the Waterstone position during sharpening. This project solves both issues and considering how easy it is, everyone should make one. The project is best build from Cedar.

That’s a nice design for holding different sizes of stones.

Maybe I’m just being paranoid, but I don’t rinse the slurry down the drain for fear of it clogging eventually. That’s heavy material that does harden when it dries. I prefer to use a shallow container and pour it out and rinse it outdoors. Your bridge would work well in that setting too.

looks great, my wife would not be happy though if I made the mess in the kitchen. I use a bucket and the sone in a holder, on a rubber mat and dip the stone every so often. your holder would fit well over a nice plastic container with water in it.

Nice design. I could probably use it over a bucket in the shop. Thanks for sharing.

Dedicate few hours to sharpening the knifes and she will not see the mess again
