    Looks great!

    btw, I purposely make them tight, and then go back with a file, to ensure a nice tight fitment.
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the tip No Chop!
    I was making one today, using a rasp to do the final clean up, and I overdid it will use file instead.

    tks, for the grain, it just happen that the timber i decided to use has really nice pattern. I didn't choose the good bits.

    Here is another one, for shig santoku, timber is called flame Mackay cedar, native to Queensland, AU. I double it is a true ceder but quite soft like ceder. Horrible stuff in terms of irritation, had to use air-sheild mask when cutting it up



    this is the flame
