Eric’s Sharpening Station

The station was designed with heavy elements so it would stay put while lapping and honing. Built of white oak with rot-resistance in mind. Wenge accents. Breadboard ends and tusk tenons just for fun. The stone holders are removable and held in place with dowels, and they’re stair-stepped so chisel handles have clearance of the adjacent stone while lapping the backs. The swarf collection tray is also removable and replaceable. Now I can take a blade from dull to sharp in a matter of seconds without unpacking all my sharpening supplies. A worthy expense of shop space even in a small, packed shop. I’ve taken some heat that it’s “too nice” for shop furniture. To that I can only respond, you may please have a snack of poop. I believe Confucius said that.
