Was using my old Smith and Wesson folding pocket knife when I noticed how beat-up the plastic handles were. Perfect new project! So I searched through my scrap wood for something thin enough yet still large enough to make both sides I found a large enough scrap of Circassian (sp?) walnut. From there it was off to the scroll saw to cut the overall shape, drill the screw holes and the recessed hole for the blade's pivot. After all that a lot of hand sanding and some spray clear coat and I was set. This was one of those "let's see if I can do it" projects.
