This is the last kerfmaker a made for a friend who gave me his spray gun lately. Since he didn’t want a plain model made out of… MDF, he suggested “Maple & Inlayed Ebony” to tease me. So I took his words and made one for him. So the barter would be close to fair, I added some brass hardware.

Made out of shorts, but with all my friendly heart!

Nice to seeyour face again.
I still have not made a kerfmaker, so this might be the last drop that makes the water flow over the edge, and me going back to Copenhagen to make one…
Really nice one you did.

You’ve had one picky barter partner. Haha! Nice work. Got time to make one for me (I don’t mind MDF!)? I have some paint brushes to trade for it – well, they can do the job of a spray gun …. (I already heard “Nice try.”).

What a cool idea! I did some research on this tool and have learned I probably will need to make one myself!
