    Interesting choice on the dye, but the construction is solid!

    My goodness, you have great woodworking skills. What type of wood is it made out of, if you don't mind me asking?

    Thanks for the kind words guys. Yeah I've been experimenting with different dyes and lacquer on Poplar wood. I think I've decided to just go the natural wood route, and buy some premium wood from one of the vendors on this forum.

    Another saya I just finished.

    Nice work. I see you're also using a saw rasp. Those things make this process soooo much easier.

    Poplar generally has a green tint naturally, and I think it gets stronger with age. So the dye is just sort of giving this one a jump start imo.

    Nice job! Did you intend to carve it in addition to laminating it, or did it just end up not fitting without a little adjustment? My Shig did that to me, I had to alter the interior of the sheath to get the tang to fit without stressing the wood.
