This is worth a look ---- Actually you don't even need the plate glass a piece MDF will be fine -- --- And YES!! its really this easy/simple -- makes you wonder what you were led to believe regarding how to get tools sharp -- I undersand that one of the high priced Luthier Schools spends a week on sharpening a chisel and block plane blade--- NO JOKE!!
You'll need to sign in -- there is no charge -- once signed in click on the plate glass sharpening video to the right of the viewing window.

This shows a similar system from Todd Stock at the open house . Great video and shows just how simple it is to get a good edge. Between this and Ken's link , you should be able to figure a way to help you

Can't open the link, I guess I have to be a member or subscribe. But I have an old plate glass rectangular table top that I use. I have several different grit sizes of sandpaper stuck to the surface. Makes for quick work.

try it again. It is a you tube video and you don't need to be a member. Lots of great hints there
