  1. Knife Pair for Christmas

    We did a "Dirty Santa" gift exchange with my family this past Saturday. We did the exchange so men exchanged with men and women with women. So, I knew knives would be well received by any of the men in my family. I started out making a camp knife for the exchange a few weeks ago. Well, when...
  2. Knives Times Two

    I usually go to the coffee shop for coffee. But another barista ordered two knives to give as Christmas gifts. The deadline is mid December but they are done and ready to go. Materials Used: Spear Point blades from Woodcraft, Mesquite Burl from Arizona, Ziricote from a local wood source and...
  3. Precision Rule Sheath

    I wanted more protection for my rules than the paper envelopes they came with. I had some scrap mahogany strips from ripping some table legs. I ripped the maple strips from some 1/8th stock bought at Rockler. The "tenon caps" were done with the table saw and auxiliary fence. I got lucky with a...
  4. sheath

    I started this quite a while ago and only got around to putting the thumbscrew fastener on it today… a solution to the problem of sheathing an inshave… I stole the idea from Peter Galbert's drawknife sheath… camera distortion does not show the wedge shape of the cover…
  5. First set of bow bread knives, OUCH, they are sharp!

    I first saw these bow bread knives at a craft show in FL earlier this year and then searched here on LJ and found a few and where to buy the blades and accompanying stainless steel screws (KenCraft Co. Inc. Toledo, OH sells these kits) I made all 5 of these over the past 2 months in between...
  6. Camping knife

    This is another knife blade from woodcraft. I made this one for my brother-in law. He does some hunting and camping, i figured it would help him out. Overall i believe it is just over 7 inches. The handle is cocobolo with a stripe of red oak in the middle. The leather sheath is made of some...
  7. New axe handle for daughter

    Well our daughter called me one day and said " Daddy can you make me an axe? Or clean up an old one for me?" She had joined several campfires / been camping and ended up helping the boys build the fires. One boy even commented how she had bested another boy in a kindling splitting...
  8. 2020 Knife Swap knives, sheath and box

    For this year's knife swap, I drew Keebler1 as my recipient. Kevin drives truck, and is on the road, so I thought that a carving knife with a sheath might be a good item to send to him. The knife has a Mora 1/0 high carbon blade with a brass bolster and a two-piece dyed and stabilized spalted...
  9. Tomahawk

    I really just had to give a tomahawk a try. This is a Craig Barr [deermountainforge] forged tomahawk head. He really does outstanding work, and quick shipping [although you do pay for it]. The handle is made from walnut with poured in place pewter caps on the top and bottom of the handle. The...

    I made this shadow box for a friend of mine who retired from the military not long ago. He wanted a shadow box just big enough to fit all his badges but did not want the typical shadow box with the flag inside. It is made out of cherry and i mitered the corners and added walnut splines for look...

  14. Marking Knife Sheath

    I wanted to make a nice sheath for the marking knife my husband just bought for me to keep my fingers intact and the knife sharp. I came up with this cute fishy idea. It has a magnet to hold the knife in place while it's hanging. The tiny eyelet with leather cord is perfect for hanging it...

    These are two knives I made. The first one is using a production spear-point blade from wood craft. I made the handles using maple burl and ebony. The thin stripes are dymondwood plywood. A friend made the sheath for me. The second knife I designed and cut out the blade from O1 tool steel...
  16. First wooden knife sheath
