Got out to the shop today for a couple sessions and managed to finish the project, other than needing to apply a couple coats of wax once everything dries.  I added the hardware to the safety strap, a...

The sheath is coming along nicely.  I have progressed thru several more steps and have sewn the belt loop down, glued in the welt, and folded over and sewn down the edges and sanded that edge.  I pain...

Back in the shop for a quick session.  Antiqued the sheath to bring out the details.  I'll leave it for the antiquing to dry and then put a coat of finish over it to seal it and move on to the next st...

Boredom... the curse of retirement.  I decided I wanted to make another knife for myself and I had purchased two of the shawnee pattern blanks and rough brass bolsters. I planned to use Walnut for my...

Now, I had made a bunch of knives in the last few years, but don't claim to be great at it.  I am always learning and I always see the ways to improve when I am finished with each.  But, the wife LOVE...

I suffered a hand injury that kept me from major woodworking projects for a good while, and I still have a pucker factor when I use the table saw or the router, so I avoid those when I can.  I broke t...

They look good, I guess when you open the door on the cabinet to grab a book the titles won't be obscured and the owner will know which of the three cases it should be in.  Nice job.  Shouldn't be as ...

I drilled the holes for the dowels on the drill press, careful to space them so they did NOT hit the screws coming in from the other side.  Didn't want to ruin that high priced forstner bit. :no: T...
