  2. Damascus Knife with Presentation Box

    My son's birthday was last week. For this year's gift, I decided to make him a knife. On vacation a few weeks ago, I picked up a Damascus blade blank from Smoky Mountain Knife Works. The blank as purchased is in photo 5. I added some scales from some nice burly Eucalyptus that LJ ki7hy sent...
  3. Osage Orange one piece pistol grip (Ruger GP-100)

    Recently used some of the Osage Orange wood I've been playing with and made a new grip for my Ruger GP-100 357. It's a one piece grip when finished that slides over the handle frame of the revolver. All the inside milling was done on the drill press with router bits. The outside shaping and...
  4. Carving Knife

    Back in early December, my friend Dan and I talked about carving, and I pointed him at various Morakniv knives. Well, I had a few blades sitting here, and during my recovery from back surgery, I cut out some scales for one of them and made a knife for him. One side of the handle is apple from a...
  5. Knife

    Friday/Saturday project that was delivered today as a birthday gift. I used multiple materials: prefab knife blank with water buffalo horn and cocobolo "wood" scales accented with 1/4" mosaic pins. I also made a sheath after these pics were taken. Enjoy!
  6. Purpleheart Pocket Knife Scales

    Isolating myself in the garage. The only power tools I used on this were a drill for the holes (I have an egg beater drill, but it needs a lot of work) and the laser to burn in my logo. I used a coping saw to cut it out and rasps. files and sandpaper to get it in it's final shape. It is...

  8. Upgrading Knives with Wooden Scales

    My original fascination with making something from wood started with a pocket knife and a stick when I was maybe 5 or 6yrs old. I used the knife to sharpen one end of the stick to a point and suddenly I had an arrow. From that time, I always had a small pocket knife with me. On a whim, I picked...
  9. Bottle openers, first scales

    Nothing special here, the woods are black/white ebony, walnut, local mesquite, purple heart, and another mesquite. I had been wanting to try my hand at attaching wood to metal for some time and I had a stack of these stainless steel bottle decappers collecting dust. I figured it was a good...
  10. Assorted Trinkets

    Generally the most sales of any crafts occur in the lower price range. People want to buy something as a gift or whatever, they just don't want to pay a lot of money. This assortment shown above attempts to keep that price zone sweet spot full for my shelves at the gift shop. The coasters were...
  11. Knives x4

    Here are four sets of knife handles I've recently made. One blade was a gift to me and one will be used as a gift to another later this week. The other two were for practice. And I sure do need more practice!!! The blades are prefabricated and sold at the wood craft store. The woods used...
  12. Knife scales - Madagascar (black & white) ebony

    I made some new knife scales for a friend, using book matched pieces of Madagascar (black & white) ebony. Also cleaned up the blade and sharpened it well beyond what any reasonable use would require. Because I love wood, and I love sharp stuff, too. The scales are bookmatched, so the pattern...
  13. Scales of justice

    I've made a bunch of these for the NAACP banquet each year. It's a bare bones type project for table centerpieces and they take care of the painting and decorating. When the committee came back for more the second year I asked what happened to the ones I made the year before and was told they...
  14. table saw blade knife - walnut - stone inlay

    So the next time you wear out an old table or circular saw blade, dont throw it away, make a knife blade! I just found a template online for a primitive skinning knife and size it properly for your blade. Then trace it onto blade and cut out. We used a torch for this one, but you can use a...
  15. SpearPoint Knife Handles/Scales

    More knife handles-before and after shaping photos. I'm not a knife maker so I use prefabricated blades. This one was picked up at the local wood c r a f t store. I used leftover wood Gabon ebony and mesquite burl with whitetail deer antler to make the handles. They are held on with epoxy and...
  16. Handles on Skinner Knives

    Three small skinner knives I recently put handles on. The woods used from top to bottom are padauk, purpleheart and verawood. I made the pins out of brass tubing. And on the verawood knife I filled the pins with a turquoise/epoxy mix. I finished with a paste wax then buffed them out with a...

    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...
