So this is my first ever Knife handle and Gift Box. So lots of new things that I learned.
I watch a few YouTube videos and thought I should make a knife handle this will be fun(Famous last words right). I started with a knife blank from Zhen. I choose the kitchen Knife because I liked the size of it. Found a piece of ebony that I liked and started the project. So with some sanding and more sanding and more sanding this is what I came up with.
Started life as a Birch 1×4 from Lowes. It was left over from another project. I planed it down to 1/4 inch. First time using my new Dewalt 6 inch planner :). Box is put together with half lap joints. The top is a sliding top with a thumb hole to be able to push open once closed. Inside I cut some form to hold the knife.
