Scratch that. Looks like you already did.
Your tang looks angled down too much IMO. It'd make the handle be lower at the butt end than the ferrule end, unless you drill a crooked tang slot into the handle. If anything, I'd angle the tang a tiny bit up relative to the rest of the knife.
Edit: I take that back. I personally would make the center line of the tang parallel to the spine of the knife like Mike did on his.
Good eye. I agree on getting the center line parallel with the spine (which means angling it up a bit). Should make things a bit easier down the road.
