Sharpening block

Just a quick project.

With all the pruning that Shelley now does I'm expecting to be doing more sharpening. I'll probably be using a diamond sharpening file for the secateurs but regardless of that it made me think about my oil stones (whetstones.)

I should have made this years ago. It's just a simple block to hold them in place. It fits in a vice and my leather honing strop can hang next to that.

Made from odds and ends of timber, glued, screwed and wax coated. This fits two of the 203mm (8") whetstones so I can have the coarse and the fine side by side.
