first is a folder with purple heart scales
second is another folder …that didn’t get to much better then the first 1
third is a bottle opener I made for beer swap same size as a rolling rock pony bottle …but never joined in so Andrew got this item also :<))
forth is a marking knife purple heart and a celtic knot from cherry it is the first knot I ever made
fifth is compact compass from john Heinz IbuiltIt pattern
nothing is really excellent but I’m taking it as just more experience hopefully next time will be better :<))

Nice work, Tony! Those are nice-looking folders, and I’m sure Andy will get a lot of use out of them.

Love the two-tone scale one!

Great beer, too! Remember when only Pennsylvania kids drank it- all we could afford!

Nice job on everything. Super job on the celtic knot, especially for a first.
beer and knives, great combo.

I can’t believe your sent two folders, bottle opener and marking knife. You out did yourself. You could have split this in half and sent the other half to me. Excellent work buddy!!

Kudos on that Celtic knot Tony! Those things are tough to get just right but dang, that one is gorgeous. It’s a great package but my favorite is the second folder :-). I have to remember that combo in the future :-)). Is it Cocobolo and Ebony? And, were the folders a kit?

Tony, when I saw the progress pics I knew this would be nice. Now I can say this is one of my favorite! Super job and thanks for taking part in the swap!
