This mitered sharpening box has dividers for storing all your sharpening gear in dedicated spaces, and a laminated lid with cleats to hold sharpening stones and set up honing guides perfectly each time. Bob Van Dyke customized his box for the tools he uses regularly, and you can do the same for your own. Not sure what sharpening equipment you need? Also included is a basic sharpening kit that Van Dyke recommends to his woodworking students.

That box looks like cherry. We don't always specify the wood because it's totally up to the builder what to use. The wood is purely an aesthetic decision on this project. If a particular type of wood is required for a functional purpose then we'll specify.
I LOVE this! I want to make one, but I'm new to this stuff and don't know what type of wood to use. (Why don't these articles ever specify what materials were used?)
