Pics of your sharpening area

Postby Lansky1 » Mon Apr 15, 2019 12:25 am

In between woodworking projects, I use my drill press table next to my workbench for my Lansky sharpening rig. Just curious to see how everybody else sharpens & what your setup is ... post up some pic(s) if you can ::tu::

John, you’re way too organized for me. I have a cabinet shelf with my stones on it. I just grab the one or two I want, some oil or water and a couple of rags, spread some newspaper on the kitchen table, sit down and get after it. ::facepalm::

I’m sitting here on the couch with a folding table right now. Pile of Western stockman knives, old natural stone, and a DMT Extra extra fine diamond hone.

I have a hobby/business in my town sharpening knives.

Doing several in an evening got to be a pain in the back standing at the counter. So I repurposed an old bedside table to use for my Edge Pro setup, it is the perfect height to allow me to sit down and work.

The only things I use regularly not in the photo are my swing arm magnifying lamp and stone flattening setup.

This is my sharpening, cleaning, tinkering and etcetera setup. I have a bunch of other stones and other knife maintenance related stuff under the sink and in a droor. I don't have a lot of space but it works out. I have spent a LOT of time here.

Those Stocks are making me drool! I’ve been looking for exactly the right one for years.

Oh, and I do my sharpening/cleaning with an old newspaper across my lap, couple of files, a dollar store stone and a second hand fine one and a bottle each of thinner, alcohol, and rust remover. Oh, and a pencil.
Does the job!

I like to sharpen at the end of my kitchen counter. With the stone at the edge of the counter so my right hand is not over the counter if that makes sense. But I also will just hold the stone at the kitchen sink.

Near kitchen sink, kitchen table, bathroom sink, basement work bench, lap sitting outside on
front porch or rear porch deck.

Just being careful not to scratch anything the misses has control over! :D
