    Saya Making Stuff

    A couple weeks back I posted a thread of the first saya I made. I did not have the proper tools to make a saya but I tried with what I had laying around anyhow. I was happy with the end result but I decided if I was going to make more that I should invest in some proper tool.

    I purchased a 1/4" and a 1/2" hatachi white steel japanese made chisel and a pair of hand planes. I also got some new wood, tulip, zircote,olive,and some purpleheart.

    I'm now ready to try again!

    Yes, it is a good start and I am glad somebody is doing it.

    It's hard to pursue too many hobbies at once. Time and concentration is in short supply.

    How's this going? You still interested in making custom sayas?

    Yeah Im still interested. My problem at the moment is my limited access to larger wood working tools. I do have a friend with everything I need but it is hard to arrange shop time with him as he is a busy man. I will be getting to his shop in the next couple of days and I should have another one made soon.
    I hope to see some improvement from the first one,I will post a photo when I'm finished.
