Beautitful wood, Tony, and a fantastic set overall.

Ive got a set of Marples, the smallest being my go to, but now youve inspired me to try and make a couple specialized sizes. Of course, I will use olivewood for that.

The sycamore handles really pop, and you made a complete set with a box to store them in, while herding the cats as the swap leader. You are putting the rest of us slackers to shame.

Nice work!!!

Very nice work, Tony! I love the sycamore, and the storage box is a great thing to supply with a set like this. Way to raise the bar, bud!

Magnificent, set. That quarter sawn sycamore makes it pop big time.
