View Full Version : Saya Making Stuff

10-21-2011, 03:42 PM
A couple weeks back I posted a thread of the first saya I made. I did not have the proper tools to make a saya but I tried with what I had laying around anyhow. I was happy with the end result but I decided if I was going to make more that I should invest in some proper tool.

I purchased a 1/4" and a 1/2" hatachi white steel japanese made chisel and a pair of hand planes. I also got some new wood, tulip, zircote,olive,and some purpleheart.

I'm now ready to try again!

Yes, it is a good start and I am glad somebody is doing it.

It's hard to pursue too many hobbies at once. Time and concentration is in short supply. :(

How's this going? You still interested in making custom sayas?

Yeah Im still interested. My problem at the moment is my limited access to larger wood working tools. I do have a friend with everything I need but it is hard to arrange shop time with him as he is a busy man. I will be getting to his shop in the next couple of days and I should have another one made soon.
I hope to see some improvement from the first one,I will post a photo when I'm finished.
