    Wow! Hard to believe. Really great for any attempt. Never mind first try. Looks good.

    Thanks guys for all the positive feedback. Im glad most of you seem to like my lamps as well.

    Stefan, I think next ill try to make a handle with a beautiful piece of ironwood burl I picked up from Randy Haas.

    pkb, you are right I have not drilled the tang slot yet.
    I got some great advise from some members here so I put the handle together with a 5/16" wood dowel down the centre to help hold every thing together. I will affix the blade to the handle with epoxy.

    I think I might use this handle to replace the handle on my moritaka cleaver.
    I will probably make a few more first before I make any decisions.

    Very sweet! Way to jump in the deep end. Am I remembering wrong, or did you get some saya nomi and start making sayas too?
