    Lets see your sharpening stations

    I'm tiered of my set up, not my stones, just how I set them up for sharpening sessions. So I'm looking for ideas. I sharpen at home, in the kitchen (small apartment.) I'm a visual learner, so a picture speaks loudest to me. So lets see 'em guys

    Whipped up this set up the other day.

    Cost nothing, so a great economical choice. Used what I found.

    This is mine (during the summer). The stones are now soaking in my basement, and I just ordered some hotel pans and Jon's stone bridge. I am trying to come up with a better winter set-up.

    +1 and a suehiro stone holder. The stones that I use the most stay piled up on the kitchen counter.

    The wife hates me getting that stone residue everywhere. It is my concession to her, and in return she ignores what I buy.

    The fatigue mat definitely lends a lot of thought into the station.

    my stone station is a silpat on top of one of my cutting boards. i usually just use a chunk i cut out of a thick outdoor rubber stair tread, instead of a stone holder. the sink next to the cutting board is adequate most of the time, as only three of my stones stay soaked (and they live under my kitchen island). i do stand on an anti-fatigue mat, though.
