So, Thought I'd put together a little organizer/storage unit for my WEPS.

Dang if it didn't turn out to be the happiest little organizer box I've ever made.

Oh, I've been lurking for a while, well, since I got the WEPS,

But didn't really feel I had anything to share until now...

This is great place, and a great source of sharpening info. I check it most nearly every day.

Well that is the happiest storage box I've ever seen! :) Welcome and thanks for your contribution. I'll bet you have plenty to add. ;)

Great job. I mean really nice construction.
Just curious, how much does it weigh all loaded up?

Now that is a very good question. It's a little heavy, so I just went out and weighed it.

The WEPS mounting board and blade holder weigh 8#4oz on its own.

The rest of it is made up of 1/2" baltic birch ply, with 1/8 ply bottoms and weighs in at 16#6oz, with all the accessories in it.

Total weight is 24#10oz. That'a actually heavier than I thought it would be.

I suppose I could use a different way to mount it than using the mounting board. That would save quite a bit of weight.

Question
It wouldn't be too hard to add a top that allowed for the WEPS to stay fully mounted, and carried by a top handle, would it?
Very nice work.

Very nice work.

That would actually be very easy. Just another small box, with a lip to fit around the inside of the top section, and a couple of latches. It would also be easy to drill a hole in the back that would go down through the drawers to fit a pin of some sort to keep the drawers closed while in transit.

Great idea. Thanks Mikedoh!
