Ice cream and beer. Hmmm…. I’m not coming to that party, but love the looks of the tools ;)

Beautiful handles. Did you also make the hardware? Nice combination: Indian rosewood and padauk are beautiful woods and a delight to work with… if you have a good extraction system. I don’t so I have to sort that out. Indian rosewood dust put me in bed for almost a week (it plays hell with your respiratory system… I later discovered) and padauk dust not only stained a shirt and a pair of trousers orange but, in the attempt to wash it out, transferred the dye to a pillow case and another shirt.

We take our lives in our hands, don’t we?

thanks, I modified the stainless steel parts bought from rockler. definitely need good dust collection. I find that if I rough it out with bandsaw and carving tools, then sand it by hand outdoors I keep most of it out of my lungs.
