    WIP

    I don't show a lot of WIP photos because my work isn't nearly as dramatic as the knife WIP photos I have seen. Some of those knives are stellar!

    In the last 2 weeks, I have completed 70+ boards and plans are to have at least 70 more completed in the next two weeks. With three major shows coming up in Oct and Nov, plus the Christmas season rush, I need to stock up now. With that said, here is a photo of the last trailer load of raw stock just recently brought into the shop. The trailer can handle up to 3500 pounds and I have 2600 on there in the photo. And another will be brought in this coming week.

    The bottom three layers are hard maple, one cherry, two mahogany and two walnut.

    Along the way in the coming weeks, I will post some in-process photos of a couple of boards that might be of some interest.

    I had to start posting to my folders on kkf, then using the url form there to post in threads. No idea why.
    Chewie's the man.

    I post a photo but I can't seem to get a photo to stick since I last tried in the OP 11 days ago.
