    Wicked Edge knife sharpener sharpening station.

    So I recently bought a 'Wicked Edge Precision Sharpener' sharpening system for sharpening knives.

    I can't sharpen a knife free hand if my life depended on it, and I've used those hand held lansky and smith sharpeners. I always liked the idea of the way they control the angle.

    The WEPS takes that to the next level with quality diamond hones and a variety of stones and strops you can get to put together whatever kind of system works for you.

    The one thing it lacks however is decent way to store all the stones and other 'stuff' that goes with it.

    So here is my happy little solution.

    I really didn't intend for it to have a little face like that. Home Depot had a bunch of contractor packs of SS drawer pulls on sale, so I had bought a bunch a while ago.

    I put the pulls on it, and there it was, a happy little box...

    Well, It works pretty good!

    I REALLY like your "Happy Face!" With that around you just have to smile while sharpening whatever.

    Enjoy,

    Very nice. Happy face is like mine when I now use my kitchen knives. Thanks, Brent.

    Just did box joints on it.
    Should have done half blind dovetails, but the Ibox is just already setup and dialed in, it takes 2 minutes max for me to swap out my table saw blade for the box joint blades to do these.
    I'm getting faster at swapping out the blades too.

    Ain't that Ibox nice? I think it's the best tablesaw/router accessory they've ever come up with. I even used mine to make an accessory box for my Multi-Router.

    The combination of those two items, with the freud box joint blades made this a very easy project.

    I started on it yesterday morning for a couple hours, then another few today. Just being able to trust your tools to do what they are supposed to makes things go so much faster.

    I.e. I knew the box joints would work, so no time expended to change any settings or test.
    I knew the rip fence was dead on, so take a measurement, and use it.

    Having the proper tools, and properly setup, just made everything go faster with no rework for damaged or mis-cut parts...

    Oh, and the biggest thing is just having the room to work, without crap cluttering all the benches.

    Having tools that you can trust to be "on" is a wonderful feeling, isn't it?

    I really like these box joints, got to get my ibox out and try using it. You making it look so darn easy to get organized.


    Especially after being scared off that dovetail jig with all those fiddly adjustments. Funny how they don't show that "infinitely adjustable" part in the sales blurb. See Carol I paid careful attention.

    Brent I missed the whole wicked edge demo but just before we left your place you were sharpening Carols knives on another gadget so which is it that's best for the kitchen knives. I am thinking automation for my wife might be the way to go. Then she can sharpen her own and get to learn to look after an edge better when she sees how much effort is involved.
    cheers
