Thank you so much for applying your time and talents here. I have a question about a video episode that Andy Rae had: “Sharpening a Plane Iron: Honing the Edge Part Two: Use sharpening stones to flatten the back of the blade and hone the cutting edge”. In this episode, he utilizes a container that keeps his stones in the water and also provides a strong platform for honing files and other edges. Do you have any suggestions as to how I could build a set up like this? The frame seems to me should be made of untreated wood as the chemicals in the treated would may have an adverse effect on the stones. A strong frame that you can really put pressure on. My stones are in small blue plastic containers, but they always dry out.
Thank you in advance,
