    Anyone ever made their own stone holder that fits above a sink? I've got a small round sink, and nothing I've seen really fits.

    I made one out of some scrap material. It works well enough. The constant curve may be harder to work with however.

    is the sink shaped as a bowl? or as a cylinder? also a damp cloth in either or both sides should help stabilize it

    It's a cylinder.

    If any of y'all have 3D printers, I've just designed one, gonna try and print this out this week and try it. DM me if you want the STL files.

    I created my own

    I bought a wooden plank 10x4cm. Then I cut out 2 5cm pieces which I then nailed on the bottom side to use as wedges when I put it above the sink. You need to carefully measure the width of the sink and simply nail them in the correct place.

    It works beautifully! The main thing is that it is not producing any sound, like all other produced sink bridges (just check some of Jon's sharpening videos).

    The good point is also that if I turn it slightly I wedges to the sink and it is completely unmovable.

    I do not have the picture but something like this (shown upside down):

    Quick and really cheap solution that is serving me now for 5 years.
