    Bird's eye maple is my absolute favourite wood for bowls and cutting boards. Cannot get enough.

    I'm positive this is a dumb question but here goes anyway.. Why do they not need pins?

    They look great btw

    Well, they are friction fit to start, as in the cavity is the exact size of the knife.

    Being that the machi was wider than the 1/8" spacer, I made the cut to where the machi tapers to 1/8" both top and bottom.

    The sayas fit very snuggly, without pins.
    The difference between try and triumph is a little "umph"! NO EXCUSES!!!!!!!

    The birdseye is gorgeous! But, it happens to be my favorite wood. I own a few cutting boards and wood spoons/spurtles in It. Beautiful work
