Hello!
I've been reading and learning a lot on this forum! Thought it was finally time to create an account and introduce myself!

I recently sold my Lansky and got a WEPS! I'm so excited. It's on its way.
I got a PP1, 1200/1600, Cube, Eraser, and some Blank Platens.

I plan to inlay the Blank platens with some glass.
I've got a storage solution set up.
I've got a list of ancillary tools and mods.

I've been a long time member of EDCF and BF, but I've recently gained much interest in the science and more advanced subjects of steel, knives, and sharpening.

I want to thank ALL of you on here and especially Clay and the WE team!

Welcome from a anther noob. I have been at it for a couple of months now and all I can say is this has turned into a complete obsession! I've gone to everybody looking for knifes to work on. It used to be just to get a knife sharp? Now it is just how sharp do you want it to be? If one of my knifes is not "Wicked Sharp" now, it just won't do!! Watch lots of videos and have fun!!!
The definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again and expect a different result?
An old Irish toast, May the wind always be at your back, may you always have work and may you be in heaven a half hour before the devil knows your dead. Cheers!

Photos will be provided. Ordered the set up on Thursday. Not sure how long estimated shipping is. Not worried about it though.

You asked!

I got my Wicked Edge all set up.
Prior to today I had kept the sharpener on the base sitting on my nightstand. All the accessories were kept in here:


The wife didn't like me using the nightstand and I wanted something more capable for storage and whatnot. So I built a small table:

Mounted the sharpener:

Attached some drawer liner to protect the stones and joints from banging around when I set them down:

Made the table a hinge top box to store the stones, strops, and other items:

A dowel to keep the door open:

Some dowels to hold up the stones:

A VCI pack to keep the rust away. I know the diamond stones won't rust, but I wouldn't want any steel shavings left on the stones to cause any rust that might spread to the stones. Farfetched, maybe.

The alignment ruler is tucked away:

The magnifiers also work ok with my phone so I can get some edge pics (only about 60x):


I love this system and set up. Definitely recommend it. The table cost $40 to build.
Anyway, I'm having so much fun with the WE. Sharpened a bunch of knives, broke in the stones.

Welcome, Jacob! And nice table you've made. I've been thinking of building something similar myself. One reason I haven't done it yet is I thought it has to be heavy with thick legs in order to be stable enough and not wiggle. Your table/drawer seems to have quite thin and long legs. Is it stable enough?
