Nice Rick! We're going to have to talk sometime about how you pulled off that spacer trick, very slick!
I always forget what type of wood it is. I usually get this stuff from Craig Stevens on Ebay but in my purchase history I am unable to view the details of the items. Let's just say it's stabilized awesomewood. For the construction I glued one spacer to each scale then I glued the top scale to the spatula. After that I glued another spacer to the bottom half of the scale to make it flush with the tang. Then I just glued the other scale on to sandwich it all together, pinned it and finished. Now I just need to hope it all stays together.....
