The biggest thing I see, is that you need to build toolrest(s) to help you hold your angle with the tool being sharpened. Freehand just won’t do it.

Always remember that you want the sharpener to ALWAYS be turning/running away from you, so that you won’t get a kick-back that would throw the tool at you.
