Hello. I just finished a new tool rest and platform for my bench grinder. Its made with cherry plywood, cherry, and maple. I have two t-tracks, each running beneath a wheel of the grinder. I have a tool rest for lathe gouges and a more standard tool rest for chisels, gouges and such. The latter has two platforms, a 5” deep one for plane blades and other large objects, and a thinner 2” deep platform for chisels so that the handles do not get in the way. The angle is adjustable and the maple platforms also can slide in and out. I used ChunkyC’s project as inspiration http://lumberjocks.com/projects/51685 . Here are some close up shots disassembled incase anyone whats to make one similar to mine.
