    Re: whats a good stone?

    elmer, I assume you mean a waterstone. I have used Arkansas stones for years (soft and Wachita) with great success. I too, recently purchased a waterstone (800 grit) and it works about as well as the Wachita. I finally broke down and bought a Nagura stone (used to prepare the surface of the waterstone and create a 'mud slurry' on the stone) and this GREATLY improved performance. I would think the 1000/4000 stone would work very well for your tools. The 4000 grit stone is useful for final polishing of the edge and is a lot quicker than a strop but not as convenient while you are working.

      Hi Elmer,
      Have you given any thought to diamond or ceramic? Dishing will occur over
      a long time as you use the natural stones

        Hi
        Try the ceramic stones 800 & 8000
        they are great & you dont need water or oil
        but the best is Eze lap diamond stone (super fine)
        I use them all & the diamond is the best

          Thanks for the info Denny. When I cut acrylic I always use a skip tooth blade at a slower speed. I just did not realize that the epoxy would cut the same way as acrylic so I followed the materials list in the article.

          OK folks, picture. I finally figured out how to upload a picture. Here is one each of my version of the oak and cherry boxes. Note the axle peg holding the top in place but allowing it to move.
