    I made a fatal error with the saya.
    It does not fit snug to the bolster because I did not thin the glue on the inner edge of the spacer and this prevents the blade from going all the way in. So this is a temporary saya until I make a new one.

    I was happy with the rest of the shaping and finishing. I have had this ebony for a while and had never made anything with it. It is a lot nicer than I thought.






    After talking with Pesky for a while yesterday he/we came up with the idea to taper the spacer from top to bottom.
    That should help to match the blade taper for a better fit.
    So that is what I will try on the next one.
    If that doesn't work out, I will get some chisels and try that way.

    Very nice!!! I really like the way you did these with the spacer and wood panels on the outside, so I went to WoodCraft yesterday and got some 1/8" thick pieces to try some saya's out! I even found a bent neck chisel for like $15 or so, so I can try carving some out, too! These look like a fun project!!

    Looking really good Mark. You've come a long way in a very short amount of time. Can't wait to see more.

    The ebony is striped ebony from indonesia.
    Not sure the exact variety.
    There are a couple dozen varieties. Usually generically called Macassar though incorrect.
    This came from drops I bought from a sawyer who milled them for an importer back in the 80s.
