    Gotcha.

    I'm thinking of just boring it out about 3/4", leave the rest. That should be adequate glue surface for the epoxy.

    Great, I'll take a run at this when I get home.

    so..................the lighter wood that I'm seeing at the machi is probably a dowel? That makes sense. I'll try to post some pics during the lathe process and see how it goes.

    Thanks, great...

    So what do I see when I look at the (in this scenario) horn ferrule/tang juncture? Just horn? Or are you letting the dowel come all the way through the ferrule?

    Ferrule to handle attachment

    Does anyone do this on the lathe, spec., hollow the back of the ferrule to mate with a tenon on the handle? Most of the tutorials I see use a butt joint, sometimes with pins.

    Thanks.

    Can't speak to the others but the Gesshin 2k is one of my favorites. I use it as a finisher for Forschners, etc.

    And #2 daughter did 6 months at James Cook.........great memories for her.

    That's too bad.
    Another advantage to shellac is that it seems to set more of the true color as opposed to the darkening effect that oil on raw wood gives.

    I have both the Gesshin 2k and 8k. Easy to go from the 2k to the 8k directly. The 2k leaves a nice toothy edge on stainless, and while I'm not crazy about the feedback, it does a nice job.
