I recently bought a WS3000. It works great but needed someplace to store the disks and other stuff that comes with it. I couldn’t afford some of the other jigs. I got the Stumpynubs plans and built this. I modified the plans by adding 1/2” to the depth of the disk file cut a 1/4”dado and installed a sliding cover to keep the disks in place when moving it. Everything except the steel and drawer pull came from cutoffs (Oak, birch plywood and a small piece of MDF)I had stored in the shop. Now I just need to build a stand.

Great idea regarding the sliding cover! Brilliant!!!

I too, recently purchased the WS3000 & the Stumpy Nubs Sharpening Station plans?. I have yet to start the build & glad I haven’t! Your adaptation WILL be included in my build. I also plan on placing the disk storage on the left, to allow access to the angle indicator.

Thanks for sharing this!!!

Very creative Bruce. We woodworkers are always looking for more convenient ways to store tools and accessories. I like your solution.

Good job on the storage station. I have been planning to do this but haven’t gotten around to it yet. I like the door idea.
