Currently the grindstone can disenchant items. What if it could also add enchantments? Don't go yet; there's solid reasoning behind this! In real life, grindstones are used to sharpen items. So what if the grindstone can add the Sharpness enchantment to items? This would give players a better reason to get a grindstone. It could work like this: you activate the grindstone 's spinning mechanism with redstone (this is unnecessary; you could merely add a Sharpness slot in the grindstone UI) while leaving your weapon inside. Like a furnace, it takes a little while, but when it's done it adds the Sharpness enchantment to your item! Considering how easy this is, however, there could be several downsides: First, it detracts from the weapon's durability. Second, there is a maximum enchantment level of Sharpness 1 or 2, but despite this, it continues to lose durability the longer it is left inside the grindstone, even after reaching the maximum Sharpness level. This discourages players leaving or going afk while the process continues. Third, it loses the enchantment with use. Fourth, due to the weak nature of wooden items, they would splinter, leaving you with only sticks if you attempted this with anything wooden. Also, since Diamond items are too hard, it would only work on iron and stone weapons. Annd lastly, it of course, costs XP.
