    Bored

    This is what I do when I have no real projects going in the shop...

    A $1 thrift store find. I ground a k-tip, and a wa conversion.

    The handle is a recycled octagon ho with horn ferrule. The saya is crosscut (offcut) walnut, with a handmade pin I had laying around. Kept me busy for a few hours.

    That's purdy! I really like that saya and the colors you chose. What is the red spacer material? It really pops nicely!
