    Certainly good for a first attempt and beautiful wood.

    2nd Attempt

    This is attempt number two.
    Since I have an example saya to look at for reference it should be closer this time.

    Now I get to watch glue dry.

    I apply the glue in a way that the centrifical force causes the glue to squeeze outward, instead of inward.
    It's an old box making trick involving high tech tools. In this case a q-tip.

    Just teasing. After applying the glue I go back with a q-tip to thin it near the inner edge to prevent squeeze out going into the inner area.

    Getting it thinned down



    Now I will do the rest of the sanding and shaping by hand.
    The power sanders eat wood fast and I am real close to final thickness and shape.

    OK, Here is #2 , and the chunkier #1.
    I think the 2nd one is a lot better but still not just right.

    The second time around looks pretty good. How good is the fit? Do you need a pin?

    Fits good without a pin. Won't slide off by itself. But that will change in time so I will probably do a pin later anyways.

    I used the saya you gave me with the knife as a reference for thickness and such.
    Can you or anyone else think of anything I should change?
