If you are using a “micro” bevel (which in my opinion it is no longer micro when it is 1/16”) why are you sharpening so much? Just sharpen the micro bevel and be done in a couple of minutes. I use the same method you use from 1000 to 8000 but I just do it on the micro bevel, I get a mirror sharp edge in a minute or so, all you need is a few passes per stone.

As stated above, no one can say you are sharpening the “wrong” way, but it certainly seems you are putting more effort than required.. :-)
