Thanks, I'm off and on. Pretty much do whatever I can before work.
Made this post holder thingy, way over built for something that's never going to hold more than 10lbs. Couldn't get anything else done, so this was my quick project before work today.
Finished up this hanger thingy for my foredom.
Starting back on knives.
This maple burl handle should be quite nice.
Damn Mud I might have to put i. An order with you
Final coat of tru-oil today. Tomorrow is the final sand and polish.
holy **** man! WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hopefully it doesn't fall apart under the buffer. haha
Just a few finishing steps left.
Damn man, that's awesome.
Great work MUD!
Gotta love everything about that one
Thanks fellas, it's been a while since I've worked on these coke bottle type handles.
I feel like I can get it much shinier- but gonna call it quits. Its usually when I have that "just a little bit more" thought- that things get screwed up.
Sheath done, stitching still needs improvement, but getting there.
Great looking work Mud!
Mud sent you a PM. Your knives are beautiful and id be honored to own one.
Do you have any wet/dry auto body sandpaper in 4000 - 8000 grits? Before sealing , dry sand with those, then seal , dry, dry sand and repeat.
Dad used to do that and the finish was incredible
Thank you, message replied. =)
I can get some, but what I meant was not wanting to get it too shiny. As they tend to get slippery even with dry hands. Last thing I want, is a knife that tries to slip out of your hand. I like shiny, but still functional.
