Hey brother...beautiful work, as usual!
120mm Parer with stabilized sapele from Myron. Weird wood to work with, but pretty neat.
I try to be the man I am..in times of broken lives. Shattered dreams and plans..standing up to fight. Pressures and demands..staring at the knife. Holding in your hands..
Very nice design! I would prefer a smaller simpler makers mark though.
Very nice work Don!
It's not a knife, but it's certainly something I'm proud to have made The bench, sander, and grinder were assembled by me. The disk setup was generously given to me by Charles Vestal, a really fantastic maker; all I had to do was get a motor and disk (then make the belt guard for safety). I had a lot of help with the lighting and electricity, but I wired the motors/switches myself.
Finally I can get some stuff done, assuming I have time between my classes and club.
Here is a random one of forging:
Awesome, whittle woe!
I haven't lived the life I wanted, just the lives I needed too at the time.
Cool! I love shop pics!
The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!
I have grandchildren older than you!
I am just teasing you but it is nice to see someone your age developing their talents and doing such nice work.
I agree with you about Charles V. A very talented knife maker and very nice guy.
Does this mean we will be seeing more knives from you.
I am picturing a Star Trek style run of paring/steak knives.
