    The drop point with the raised spine on the upper right corner looks fantastic. The mini Gladius looks badass too:D

    Did some kydex for this lil bowie today. I’m not much of a hand at it, but it turned out pretty good. I’ll start on a leather sheath for it later, but for now, this’ll do. 66270005-4764-43C2-BFDF-905B7CEDFBCA.jpeg

    I used to try my hand at leather works, or whatever you call it lol. Just a few things I made years back. I was pretty proud of that sog tomahawk sheath. The other was a braclet and I made the sheath for the knife. Screenshot_20200909-182021_Facebook.jpg Screenshot_20210428-114510.png Screenshot_20210428-114758.png

    Also installed the Beachmaster tires/wheels a year ago.
    Completely removable for folding. Pivot down for use, up for cruising.

    A buddy challenged me to see what I could make from a scrap of 3/4" square stock just over 6" long.
    This is the result. 15" oal and the rivet came from the bar, too.

    Made a roof to go over my smoker and new flat top. The beginning of my outdoor kitchen. Also added rope lights to it and the surrounding deck and stairs.
