I know, right? Luckily, I stocked up on wood and n95 masks before all this happened. I have enough wood to finish my knives and a couple for other people. I have 1 clean mask left.What's really funny, on a personal level, is of course I pick this hobby back up in a time where it's effing impossible to get a dual respirator dust/ paint mask. Dammit!
When you get wood at the store, are you buying the correct thickness? or buying planks and thinning them on a bandsaw or something?? id like to try this.
I buy 2 thickness. ¼" and 1" thick. I carve out and shape the 1", then glue the ¼ to that. Once dried, I shape the ¼, and remove thickness from the 1" using a belt sander. I then thin both walls to desired thickness and contour and finish. I started by using two ¼" boards and carving out both sides, but it is easier if you can carve 1 side.When you get wood at the store, are you buying the correct thickness? or buying planks and thinning them on a bandsaw or something?? id like to try this.
The tether? It's waxed twine. Purchased from Amazon. The pin is a cribbage peg I modified. Also purchased from Amazon. The wood came from home depot.Great work on the sayas. I really like the tether you added. (Dumb question)What sort of store did you source it from?
