Tom Fidgen's Dedicated Sharpening Bench

I’m working on a couple of new entries: one on “alternative” saw-tooth geometry and another about why natural and manufactured waterstones leave different surfaces behind. Until I get those ready, don’t miss these from Tom Fidgen:

A Dedicated Sharpening Bench- part 1, an introduction…

A Dedicated Sharpening Bench- part 2, assembling the cut list…

This bench would make valuable addition to any shop. Sharp tools are essential to quality (and safe!) work. If it’s a pain in the neck to find and set up the sharpening gear, your tools may not receive the attention they (and you) deserve. A dedicated station like this is more than a luxury, it belongs in the shop as much as any other work station.

Very nice work, Tom. We’ll look forward to your next post. Thanks!
