How to make a sharpening station / How to make a simple desk

In this video I show you how I made my new sharpening station in just 4 hours.

I built the table using blackbutt for the base, MDF for the bench top and the joinery I used was festool dominoes but you could easily substitute the dominoes for pocket screws or dowels.

This is a easy one day project and can be done with very little planning and very little supplies.

  1. Looks good but in uk our big box stores often have off cuts of 600mm deep x 40mm thick roll edged Formica covered kitchen worktop so I get that whenever I can as it is much more moisture tolerant and durable for tool cabinet worktops.

  2. I enjoy your work. How often are you planning on updating with new videos or blogs? I thought you were going to update weekly. Seems like it is about six week(s)ly.


    • Thanks Dwain, I still plan for new posts every week, however I do go away every couple of months for a month at a time for my touring work and posts will become less frequent.

      I failed to update everyone on my movements on my last tour but I plan to keep doing one new post each week im away next time.

      • Thanks for the feedback Jord, I really enjoy your work, way out here in Arizona, US. I look forward to your new videos and I’m glad to see you are back in a full sized shop! Good luck!
