    O.k., back to work. I have just had a frustrating summer and fall, struggling to cope with unemployment and a few other things, and rather than spending the extra time productively in the wood shop, I just slid into dark hole for a while. But things are looking up again. Still looking for a day job but getting better with more productive things again. Time for a quick update for people who may not even remember they are on my order list after such a long time... Here is what's happening on my order list:

    Chris M. - handle touch-up on the deba almost finished, just need to refinish the handle. I will try and send pics on Sunday or Monday to make sure you are o.k. with it and expect to ship the knife next week.

    Martin Dauer - Has been finished for a while, I need to follow up.
    Sebastien - Has been finished for a while, I need to follow up.
    Rick O. - Last handle from the order just needs to be run over the buffer and will be shipped next week.
    Mike Styons - pieces are cut, will glue the handle next week, should be finished within the coming 3-4 weeks.
    John Neeleman - pieces are cut, will glue the handle next week, should be finished within the coming 3-4 weeks.
    Daniel Williams - will be finished and ready for shipping within the coming 2 weeks.
    Zach Lenz (3x) - will be finished and ready for shipping within the coming 2 weeks.
    Tu Tran (2x) - will be finished and ready for shipping within the coming 2 weeks.
    Rob Sacco - will be finished and ready for shipping within the coming 2 weeks.
    Scott Schapiro - Have to see how it goes, there are a few grooves in the redwood I need to fill. If that works and looks good, handle should ship in the next 2 weeks.
    Salvatore Taibi - will be finished and ready for shipping within the coming 2 weeks.
    Sean - will be finished and ready for shipping within the coming 2 weeks.
    GilYoun Jang (2x) - pieces are cut, will glue the handle next week, should be finished within the coming 3-4 weeks.
    * James B. (7x) - pieces are selected and prepared, waiting for final confirmation before cutting and gluing.
    Taylor - pieces are cut, will glue the handle next week, should be finished within the coming 3-4 weeks.
    Philip Wolfe - pieces are selected but not yet cut to size, will try to include the handle in the next batch.
    Bret Tullis - pieces are selected but not yet cut to size, will try to include the handle in the next batch.
    dave t - pieces are selected but not yet cut to size, will try to include the handle in the next batch.
    Donald - will select pieces and make suggestions

    Ben Prescott, Bill Farrell, Mark Velten all had asked about 'off the shelf handles' - I have a box with about 25 of those in various states of readiness, but I kept pushing them aside for the longest time. I will make an effort in the coming 2 weeks to get a bunch of them ready...

    * If James B. confirms the order of a set of 7, that may add a week to the ETA of the handles coming after him in the list, but I will try to do my best.

    That's as far as I can see regarding realistic time frames right now. Once these are all at least glued together, I will contact everyone who is a bit later in the list about details again. My goal is to get them all done by Christmas at the latest.

    Thanks for your patience, everybody,

    Stefan

    I was, but I didn't like the view.
    I will pull you along from up front here on out.

    Look like a solid list. Set of 7? Lucky dog. Matching?
