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.

Similar Woodsmith Plans
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.
All of the information that you need to build our plans can be found in the standard plan. However, if you want even more granular detail to make your job easier, you should consider our premium plans. These come with additional shop diagrams that we drew when creating the prototypes. Shop drawings are not available for every plan.
