Waterstone Sharpening Tray

A handy sharpening station makes it convenient to use your waterstones. The result is sharp tools every time.

Waterstones give your tools a razor sharp edge quickly and with little effort, but they can be inconvenient to use. First, you need a way to hold the stone in place while you sharpen. But the real problem is the mess they make. It quickly spreads to cover your benchtop. This sharpening tray can help. The tray is a long base with individual platforms to hold three stones securely. The tray sides do a great job of containing the water the stones require.
