I needed a way to sharpen my plane irons and chisels. After hours of playing around on the internet, I found the Lie Nielsen’s Angle Setting Jig (http://www.lie-nielsen.com/pdf/AngleSettingJig.pdf) was just the right thing for me. I built it with a scrap piece of 3/4” ply and some hardwood I use to practice hand planning. Put a few coats of wax to prevent water from soaking into the wood. I place my waterstones on the rubber pad. I really like the preset angle stops.
Oh yea, the granite is left over from my wife’s hunt for kitchen counters. It’s a left over sample. I put a piece of wet/dry sand paper on it smooth out the stones.
