Here is my version of the Stumpy Nubs Worksharp 3000 sharpening station. It is a great all-in-one area to hold my Worksharp and all the accessories that go with it. It has 10 slots for holding either glass wheels, slotted wheels, or extra sandpaper for the wheels.

I made the whole the main structure out of 3/4” ply, the drawer is 1/2” ply and the dividers are 1/4” hardboard. I also got a little fancy and threw a cherry handle on there just for kicks. Adding the finger hole into the hardboard was a nice addition and I would highly recommend it if you do this version.

I p-touched the dividers to make it easy to figure out which side had what grit on the wheels. Also labeled the slots for extra sandpaper for ease of use. In the future I might add a piece to the top of the tower to use as the “wide blade attachment” so I can use a sharpening jig like the Eclipse or MKII and plane blades.

One note of caution. Don’t put glass wheels in the tower without any sandpaper on them. They are very slick and could fly right out when you are moving it. Don’t ask me how I know that….....ugh.

Great project and I love having all my Worksharp accessories in one place now!

Looks great!
Stumpy put some thought into his design. You did a good job executing it.

I have yet to build mine….
Maybe some “Mountain Dew Motivation” would help me!!!

Very nice addition to your shop. I have wanted to make something like this for my 3000, but alas, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. Like the p-touch idea. maybe you could add a small lip to the front of the Masonite to help keep the glass in place? Good job.
