So i unveiled my knife handle this morning.. The curly birch was glowing.. the purple heart lookes splendid.. i think i will leave the bird cherry to a picture. After all a picture is worth 1000 words.. (swear ones)
I guess the apple wood peg split it.. I knew i should have fitted it earlier..
-21 but sunny…. So like the weather this morning i take a negative and go for a positive.. I can do an article on rehandling/renewing a damaged knife.
After a bad start to the day with the knife handle and then I went to college learning.. (check this out) swedish in the third person. I got home relaxed.. Then I went to I went to my “uncles” tonight. He has a nice little forrest and turned out he is a hoarder too.
I am now a proud owner of some fine pieces of wood. willow, maple aspen, rowan, alder and birch.. And the birch is something I will have to photo tomorrow ar wood work i am going to cut and plane a few hand sized pieces.. best thing is it has been seasoned as fire wood.. and indoors for the last.. 8 months.. (some of the willow and aspen are 10 years in the box of i can do something with this) So the bits iI have are ready for some wood shop love.
I got some birch bark spacers too.. I will photo what i can tomorrow.. A new knife !! For “Uncle Kaj” (kye)
Thanks for checking in..
