My brother in law passed away two years ago and last summer my sister gave me a cardboard box full of some of his tools. In the box was a set of four Norton waterstones. I’ve been using them and find they work better than the King stones I have. Norton stones are pricy and I’m nervous about keeping them in a cardboard box so I made this case from a couple of Home Depot cedar fence pickets. It’s about 10 inches square and 4 1/2 inches high, made using Roy Underhill’s Eleven Grooved Box method. There’s room for a Norton flattening stone and a small leather strop. The third photo shows the internal cribbing that supports the stones and allows some air circulation.
