    I've been looking for something nicer than a TV tray to hone with while sitting in my comfy chair. Last weekend I looked through IKEA and found a couple of goodies. This table works fantastic. It's high enough and the legs pull under the chair without hitting my legs. I also picked up this plastic tote to hold my honing gear.

    Nice setup. One thing you may consider: if your stones are not absolutely dry when you close the plastic lid, you may want to make some ventilation holes and / or throw some silicagel packets in there. You wouldn't be the first one with moldy stones. Trust me on this one :p

    Very nice setup! And the vent holes are a great idea. A good comfortable position seems to help out on the honing for me at least. I'm going to have to make a good station for mine in my workshop.

    I made a Tray that I can move from table to table depending on the Wife's mood :p

    It tends to keep me out of trouble because I can move it when she has reached her limit of razors all over the house
    Today she was at her limit LOL

    I'd love to sit across that table and watch.

    Are those homemade hone holders in the center?

    They look very simple and useful.
