Over the past few years, my scrap bin has gotten pretty full of little odds and ends of plywood. I’ve also added different tools and jigs to my shop that needed to be kept out of the way of the sawdust and shavings. So, I decided to start Frankensteining some covers for my sharpening stones / strop and a small box to house my honing guide / sharpening jigs and doweling jigs.
These made for simple, stress-free, fun projects that I could knock out while the glue was drying on “real” projects. These little scrap projects are ugly for sure, but they do their jobs quite well. :)
The joinery is just rabbets (some doweled with 1/8” poplar dowels, some not), dadoes, and grooves. Simple, but effective.
The pictures are:
1 – A small box with a divider that holds sharpening stuff on one side and doweling stuff on the other
2 – The sharpening / doweling box opened
3 – Covers for my sharpening stones and strop
4 – Strop with the cover off to show the ugly, but effective construction
5 – My XX-Coarse and X-Coarse diamond stones in their holder with the cover off
