Quick project prompted by the fact that after sharpening the larger of the two drawknives shown here I cut myself putting it away. So today I determined to take an hour to make a couple of protectors to prevent the edges from knocking against something they shouldn’t and me from getting cut.
I used an offcut of sapele. For the large on I ploughed (English spelling) a groove with my Record 044 and then plugged the two ends of the groove. On the smaller one, I used my 1/8” mortise chisel to chisel out a mortise. Chamfered all the edges and drilled a couple of holes in each one so I could thread some jute string to tie them on.
Thanks for looking.
