Enjoyed making this for The Old Livery Shops here in Wickenburg. Finished with oil-varnish mixture then waxed.

Hi David. Nice work on that kinfe display. I love the grain of Mesquite. We come to Casa Grande, Az in the winter and have been to Wickenburg. They have some of the biggest mesquite trees I have ever seen. I bought some logs from a firewood wagon last year when we passed through. Maybe we can meet next winter when we come again. My e-mail is jcj7815@att.net if you could send me your phone number?

That is a great looking display stand David, I don’t see any seams, what did you use to clear out the insides ovals?

Actually I glued 2 pieces together. I drilled out the openings then rasps and sanding and finally got the edges thin enough.
I follow the same idea as your signature. I am responsible for my response and no one elses.
