-9in the workshop so speed was the key today….
Tweaked my belt sander and started to cut the shapes in to the knife handle this is for a right hander.
I was quite pleased with the shaping so i thought I would try a quick hand sander rub down to take some edges out. This went well. So out came the 120 grit and a frantic rub around. I was starting to be really happy.. 600 grit.. over enthusiasium.. dropped back to 400 grit now this really did work some wonders..
So now it is time to start sealing the wood.. I use tung oil as this is nice and easy to use.. i have put a coat on.. and i am letting it dry in doors.
tomorrow i will wire wool the coating and apply a second coat..
Odd things that happened today.. got given a 2 year piece of seasoned juniper
even scarier then that some one gave me a well seasoned section of curly birch..
Thanks for reading!
