DIY Japanese Axe Puck Whetstone, Cheapest and Bestest

I needed an axe puck to carry in the woods, and the ones available were either too coarse or too expensive.  So, I made my own.  20.00 for a small, high quality 250/1000 grit axe puck AND a 6 inch sharpening stone left over!  I'm very happy with the results.  I own other King brand sharpening stones and I love them.  Once I got some Japanese waterstones, the rest of my large collection of sharpening stones accumulated over decades became obsolete overnight.  This stone, like a lot of the King stones, is a bargain just for the stone, let alone a stone and an axe puck.  Links below.

King 250/1000 Grit:

King 6000 good to compliment 250/1000 to finish tools very sharp.  May come glued to a plastic base, read reviews:

King 1000/6000  Good stone, good value, too bad they don't make a 4000/8000 though:
