Multi-Purpose Sharpening Station
Upgrade your standard bench grinder into a sharpening workhorse. You’ll never have an excuse for using a dull tool again.
If you use your bench grinder for most of the sharpening chores in your shop, you may have found the standard tool supports somewhat lacking in, well, support. But turning your grinder into a capable sharpening machine with precision adjustments is as easy as building our grinder station. It’ll make previously difficult to accomplish sharpening jobs a breeze. The key to this sharpening station’s accuracy is a miter track and T-bar combination set that allows for adjustment in two directions. The aluminum-edged hardwood tool rest provides ample support and accepts a number of different hold-downs for various sharpening tasks. Building this platform for your grinder might just make it the most-used tool in your shop.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
