Thread: Lets see your sharpening stations

  1. #11


    I made a simple sink bringe out of scrap lumber from my garage. I'ts strong and stable. I've got good light above, another sink to the right, a drying matt and towels to the left. Not pictured is a spray bottle with water, and other stones that may be soaking nearby. Pictured is a Yoshihiro yanagiba, 270mm, and a Bester 1200. As much as I love my JNats, I'm increasingly amazed with the edges I can get from this one Bester, and my Arashiyama 6000.

    Cheers,

    Jack

    I worry about using the sink as stone residue could accumulate in the drain. Before my kitchen was redone the drain was easily clogged and was a b!tch to clear, so I am a bit gunshy about that.

    I have a glass-topped coffee table, and if I'm watching tv, I throw a towel on top of the table, slap down a stone, sit on the floor, and have at it. The stones live in a plastic bin of water that sits next to me and I can dip out of it as needed to wet the stone.

    Kinda what I was thinking about. I just can't see myself paying for a sink bridge when I could make one. Now it's a towel on the edge of a cuttin board for clearance, with a bath towel under that to catch all the water. Still messy as hell tho.

    Mine is permanently setup around the sink in my laundry room. This is the cleanest it has been in a while...normally the whole counter, walls and washer are covered with slurry.

    Take it from me - stone sludge can and will clog up drains.
