Two more knife scales made from Peruvian walnut, cherry and thin maple and walnut veneer strips. Really enjoying the shaping process and the finesse that these little buggers entail. Coated with 5 coats of Tru Oil, buffed on the buffing wheel with Tripoli compound, White diamond and a final coat of wax.

Fairly simple projects to make. Now I just need to learn some leather-making skills so that I can crank out some sheaths.

As always, I hope they inspire you to try out a new project.

Nice knives

Which one is the “hers”? I’d sure hate for her to be coming after me with either one! :-)

@JoeinGa – “Hers” is whichever one she wants at that very moment.

Very nice. I like the pieces of wood they are displayed on as well….lots of rough character versus the sleek smooth wood on the knives.
Well done.
