    your mise en place?

    I really like my knives as well as my stones. Its hard to pick what I love more. When the two get together though, my god they make some mess. This causes friction for my girlfriend as I always miss cleaning up somewhere or I use her "nice" tea towel to clean up.

    The other week I looked to fix this ongoing problem and bought an outdoor table for like 60 bucks. Tried this setup today and I think I like it! Out in the sun, making whatever mess I like and then get the garden hose and spray everything off. It just got me thinking.. whats your sharpening routine?

    I have that same fillet station, and probably never would have thought to use it for sharpening. Does it wobble much?
    It only hurts til the pain goes away........

    I'm rocking a suehiro stone holder, over a stone bridge, over a stainless hotel pan that I borrowed indefinitely from one of the restaurants. I'm a bachelor currently, so the rig in total is always hanging out next to my kitchen sink. Surrounded by little pieces of sandpaper and errant corks...
    Today is as good a day to die as any. Except for tomorrow. I have plans tomorrow.

    My back room is tile, so I pulled in a 30gal drum, and slotted a 2x4 to fit over the rim. I clamped a lamp and my stone holder to the 2x4...then filled the drum with water (with a package of baking soda in it). Voila...instant polishing/sharpening station. Its the perfect height for a rolling computer chair...so I can sit in the AC and watch/listen to the big screen in the back, and sand away at hardened W2 to my hearts content lol.

    I'll have to see about getting a picture.
    I try to be the man I am..in times of broken lives. Shattered dreams and plans..standing up to fight. Pressures and demands..staring at the knife. Holding in your hands..

    Snapped a picture really fast.



    My back room is a largeish (30'x14') add on that used to be an 'Arizona Room'. It's been finished and insulated etc, its mostly storage...but I keep a computer, TV, etc back here...along with a work table and the tools and such I've drug in that I won't take into the house lol.

    Trust me, it beats working in my outdoor shop at 118°F in the summer .

    I have Jon's set up exactly. His stone holder holding a stone holder over a cambro pan. I can set up and clean up in minutes. Looks cool too.
    One thing you can give and still keep...is your word.

    It's not a solid bench like in a kitchen, but it's sturdy enough.. The convenience of being outside and blasting it with the hose afterwards piqued my interest and I thought I'd see how it goes. I sort of dig mine into the dirt a little bit (I was worried about it wobbling myself) and I haven't had any problems. Not sure about it on concrete or something hard, although I've considered getting some non-slip mats or something. Being able to pack the table away is pretty handy, plus it makes a pretty good BBQ set-up as well.

    Don't mean to shun this thread, but there's an older but identical and longer one on the topic, so I posted there: http://www.kitchenknifeforums.com/sh...light=stations
