All I seem to build lately are shop projects. This sharpening station holds my WEN slow speed grinder and wet sharpening stone. Added a place on the side to hang the jigs. The grinder has CBN wheels from Wood Turners Wonders dot com.

I understand the feeling. I have about 3 shop projects I really need to make so I have room to walk properly in my shop. You did a great job on this stand. I may have to make one myself as I like the look and practicality of yours. Thanks for posting.

Cool sharpening station. if you’re having fun in the shop, that’s all that matters. I agree about shop projects, they’re a on going project.

I have a few carbide turning tools. I have tried sharpening them on my DMT plates. It works okay but i need to make a jig to hold them. They are tiny. They say you are supposed to throw them away but why?
