Looking for plans and ideas for a self contained sharpening station.
WIll include a Tormek-type sharpener and maybe another grinder. Also
should include a study stand for sharpening stones (oil or water ...
haven't decided yet). Would like to make this Station myself.

Norm's done that one.
Check out NYW plans.
Thanks, but doesn't reallydeal with the sharpening stone issue very
elligantly. Maybe I will need 2 stands ... 1 for grinding and 1 for
hand sharpening?? Know of any out of Fine Woodworking or Wood or other
practical/"shop made" oriented sources?
How ape shit do you wanna go? You've specified a Tormek (and I
assume some or most of its accessories/jigs), a grinder and
japanese water stones. You didn't mention Scary Sharp (tm)
plates or a 1" belt sander but you may get to one or both at
some point in the future.
You might not want to go this ape shit but here's the basic idea
(in 3 views with dimensions)
Full extension pull out shelves are kind of nice - much easier
to lift something up than left up a little, pull it out a bit then
lift it up to the table top
And I doubt you'll go for bear claw spruce door panels and drawer
I'm real sure you won't do the ten + layers of french polished
Here's a link to the plans that inspired the sharpening station I recently
built. It meets your criteria, and is really setup right.
I built mine a little taller, wider and deeper to meet my needs. I'll post
a pic of it at APBW --dave

Google does not archive binary newsgroups, though, so you'll have to get there
some other way than how you got here. Outlook Express and Netscape both have
newsgroup readers built in, or you can download any of a number of dedicated

I just took a closer look at you site ... wholy guacamole!!! Could you
add just a little more detail ? :)
Thanx for the fabulous ideas (at a twisted mind ... " I'm a man of
wealth and fame. No - that's the Rolling Stone's introduction").
