    No not yet, I was at work most of the day and all night. I won't be able to mount them till sunday as I have to go to my grandpa's to use his drill press. I would rather use a drill press then just using a drill.

    I used a belt/disc sander, a bandsaw, and hand sand paper, I went up to 1500 grit

    For my method I just cut the pieces I wanted, glued them together, squared everything off. then I just started to shape it
    I've never worked with mammoth tooth lol. But Randy Haas might have some advice for you...or Mike Davis.

    On the might want to reinforce the glue joints. I insert a slotted 1/2" dowel through the center of mine, which also helps with burning in the tang (you're mostly just burning out the glue). The dowel and the tang work together to support the glue joint(s).

    Nice! Great stuff Trev, Sean told me what you were up to and I had to check to see if you posted any pictures, sure enough I missed this post. They look great, just get some taper in there and they will look really great, glad you are keeping busy besides cooking all day and night

    I love the buckeye/bog oak combo. Two of my favorite woods.

    Not bad. Make them chamfers a bit wider, the handle will be more comfortable to hold.
