This so called shop project has been on and off for a few years now. Since then, I built an interim sharpening board to set up anywhere flat (yeah good luck, it's probably occupied by crapolla ). So I re-purposed a small bedside cabinet I build previously years ago, and dedicated it for sharpening.
Having a dedicated place to put it, helped a lot, I could go to it and sharpened, touch up my edges as I go etc. BUT...
I have so many vintage chisels and plane irons , alone, to be quickly overwhelmed, so power to the rescue.
I have settled (?) on a 6 inch grinder and the Worksharp 3000 to do the heavy lifting. I may add a Tormek clone and a shaped carver wheel to handle everything else I have around.
So need to figured out how much room I need to accommodate that stuff, and it does not all to fit inside same area, will be split in two separate shops. So got the tape out and rounded up the usual suspects.
