    Woohoo, got my grant submitted today.


    Now it's time to clean up a bit and this weekend I will try to remember the way to my wood shop - haven't been there in too long. Hope to catch up soon.

    Looks like I keep making the same mistake again. I start new handles and think can finish the other ones later in the evening. I get tired and go home. After a few weeks, I have a few dozen handes started but none finished while people are waiting and getting annoyed. I guess I should try working more sequentially instead of parallel Anyway, that's what I was dealing with tonight:




    That's not even all of them The good news is, there will be a whole bunch of them ready at the same time which is good because I am broke . Just spent tons on wood, band saw, band saw blades, belts, stabilizing etc. Oh, and while most are ordered, there will be a few extras for sale in a couple of weeks.

    Something slightly different: I had made a knife for my Mom but she was afraid of it - too sharp - so I made these two for her. Kept the style just like my knife handles because she had seen and liked them (what else would she say, she's my Mom...).

    Very cool way to use your handles! That's a great way for your mom to have some of your handiwork around the house
