Sharpening Bench Hook

Sharpening Bench Hook

Jeff Z.
Description
This is a very simple bench hook made from pine or any other softwood you have available. The key to keeping this bench hook flat over many years of exposure to water is a series of evenly spaced saw kerfs along the bottom. Make the length suitable to your longest water stone. The width of this model is close to the width of a standard 1 x 8. This size will accomodate two stones side by side; adjust the dimensions to suit yor own shop needs. Rinse it off and hang vertically to dry thoroughly between used and this will last you for many years. The bench stop can be moved as needed (for instance, to clamp in a vise) or eliminated altogether if you are going to fix the bench hook between bench dogs. #Bench_hook #honing #sharpening
