    Knife #5 (first wa handle)

    Coming up with a logo and deciding which one to use is tough. I’ve thought about using my name but there is a well known knife maker in the states named Jerry Fisk and he uses his last name as his logo. He doesn’t make kitchen knives but he’s won several awards and makes beautiful knives. I’ll...

    Entire state in lock-down because of a lie

    I just read this article, you guys have done a great job of containing the virus. I live in Washington state and we had 1700 cases yesterday. And we are one of the better states at keeping the numbers down. In the US we are losing 2000 people a day to the virus right now and have lost about...

    The sink bridge to end all sink bridges

    While I like to make my own tools most of the time, I totally appreciate a well made, well thought out tool. That sink bridge is both and it’s nice to have tools like that available. When I make a tool that’s been made before I’ll get inspiration from other designs. Although I do like to come up...

    Knife #5 (first wa handle)

    Thank you sir, I was wondering if there were companies that you could use to custom make stencils. I think that’s the route I’ll take. Now I just have to make a logo😬.

    Knife #5 (first wa handle)

    I basically made the same thing. I was wondering how you made the template? That’s the part that has me stuck. I’ve read about using shiny paper and a printer but haven’t tried it. The machines you can buy are kind of pricey at around $300.00 or so.

    Nice work! I like the profile and your logo looks great. What method did you use to etch the logo? I built a gizmo using a DC power supply but I haven’t made a template to try it with.

    Knife workshop

    Regarding heat treat ovens, they’re really pretty easy to build. I built mine using lightweight kiln style bricks and angle iron. No welding needed and the propane burner is also easy to build.

    Knife workshop

    It’s funny that you say that. I have enjoyed making the tools for my shop more than the things I make in my shop. Getting the shop set up properly and making equipment that helps build projects more efficiently is what I’ve enjoyed the most. Today I turned my table saw extension table into a...

    Knife workshop

    I’ve been building my shop for the last year and a half now. I have purchased all of my power tools used, or I’ve built them myself over time. I have found that you can buy really nice older tools for pennies on the dollar. I’ve used Craig’s List and picked up three 6x48 sanders, two 14”...

    Espresso Machine Recommendations Please

    The Brasília Lady boiler is 300ml. It will froth milk for 2 lattes but that’s about it until you refill and reheat.

    Espresso Machine Recommendations Please

    Something to consider if you want to get into espresso at home and don’t want to spend a lot of money is buy an older used machine. This Brasília is the first machine we got and now use at our beach house. What’s great about it is it’s really easy to work on and parts are available and cheap. I...
