new knife project
Started a new knife project. I haven't done anything since last fall. This one has a front of california buckeye burl and the rest of the handle of high grade hybrid royal walnut. I hope when I get several coats of tru oil on the star bursts will come alive. If I can get this stupid camera to take a decent photo I'll post something soon. Nothing like a change in the weather to get me out to the garage again. I have one more blade to do something with.....

poor camera quality but you can get an idea how it will look. The wood has no finish yet but I'm hoping it will look 3D after 10 coats of oil.

both knives that I'm working on. Hope to get some finish on them tonight???? Takes a lot of buffing to get the unwanted marks off them. The buckeye burl comes with eyes sometimes so you get some areas that are open, hopefully they add rather than detract from the appearance. Anyway it keeps me busy at home and settles the mind from job stress. :wacko: One of these will go to my hunting buddy in Michigan the other into my collection as these are simply hunter quality and maybe be passed down through the families.
