    It took almost 4 hours, but I dug a fire pit in time for fireworks tonight. 20200704_145833.jpg 20200704_234718.jpg

    Made the front basket on my atv into a flat rack. Then added a basket on the rear rack. I'm pretty happy with how it's setup now.

    Wrapping up the SAK build I have been working on for 5-6 years...

    Thanks again @Mountainmistwanderer for the scales!

    Plan is to have a 4 layer with most likely Awl, Flat head, Can opener, Large blade, Saw. I had to use a few extra tools and spacers to make sure it would come together correctly.

    I have other tools but they require some serious work so they will come in time.

    Would love to have brass liners but all I could find was some aluminum pieces. Maybe later :)

    I still need to trim down the spacers I made but it working good so far.

    Pictures are from the work today.

    Seems like your projects are proceeding at the same pace as my projects. The SAK is looking great!!

    That's pretty slick. You think you might add a clear coat of some kind for durability? I don't know if it's fragile or not but that thought came to mind.

    Thank you! I have a pair that I threw on my Umlindi for zipper pulls. I put clear coat on those, but nothing on the knife lanyard. I'm interested in seeing the difference over time.

    My humble submission. Lots of really excellent work here. Needed to add some scoped rifle extensions to my cabinet. With my understanding wife’s blessing an old cutting board was repurposed today. Yes the empty slot will hopefully be filled soon.

    Took my daughter to college and now I’m on 2 week quarantine for Covid need to keep busy

    Found some more parts. I don't have the capability to make liners out of Stainless so I have been trying Aluminum liners.

    Brass will look SO much better :)
