My father-in-law retired in June. My wife was browsing Woodcraft with me and saw this cutlery set she wanted me to make for him. I turned the handles and lid knob out of Olivewood. The case is made of Walnut, finished with Deft spray and lined with blue felt. I can tell you that at some point I will buy a flocking kit. Much easier than hand cutting and fitting the felt I would guess. I would say the tangs on this kit are a bit short, but my father-in-law says they are holding up well.

That is a very nice, personal gift. The olive wood handles turned out nice (pun intended). I would like to make a project out of olivewood.
