When I got my first stabilized woods from Burl Source, I mentioned I'll make a post with my work, so after a long time of procrastination here it is.
I got a variety of woods with the idea to try them for razor scales.
I found out those work great , easy to cut, shape, and also take great finish.

Some examples of scales I made, all finished in wipe on poly.

Our own Maksim's Suredge, in walnut, I also blued the tang.

the scales are made after the originals but I do not have the razor, Max will be doing the assembly.

Nice :) I must admit I've been looking at Burl Source for scale material as well. I'm lucky that I'm only looking at this time or I'd have a box full already lol. Heck I still hade a 6' (yes foot) long board of curly redwood to part out for scales...
