I've never used a waterstone, but have you tried out any oil stones? I've got a set of hard Arkansas stones, and they aren't showing much noticable wear after a lot of use. I've tried the scary-sharp method with the sandpaper as well, but I found the same thing you have- I just went through too much paper. $30 worth of stone has lasted for years, and makes an edge that seems to me to be just as good.

See ABPW for an Adobe attachment of a WoodSmithShop design.
Well thought out IMHO.

Lew Hodgett explained :

How Big?
If it is pictures you can probably shring it with many Photo programs. The resolution can be quite bad and look reasonable on a screen.

I'm not going to reinvent the wheel when a direct solution exists.

Interesting. Thank you for the link. I have a jig just like he does but I didn't use it (I didn't realize it would hold a gouge--if I once knew, I forgot).
His setup has a lot going for it. I was surprised he didn't do more work on the back before proceding to work on the bevel (right after the first grit).
I may practice sharpening some more tonight; thanks for some inspiration.
