I can see where that will be as handy as a pocket on a shirt!

Now, the next one, use this one to cut and make a knife with a recip saw blade then you’ll have a set!

This looks like something I might do. Simple, no frills, yet immensely effective. ;)

I like it. The angle on the blade looks like it makes for an easier start of cut.

From there I’d be inclined to experiment with shaping the handle (or another one), see how you can get it to fit your hand well.

If you want to go crazy, make a knife and use the two tools to “dogfood” making the next ones.

Personally I’m a big fan of “making tools to make tools.” But you can really drive yourself insane :)

TheDude: I’m gonna step outta my role as a Lumberjocker and step into my role as a police detective. I have no doubt you are being sincere. But it’s not a very good idea to encourage a 13 year old boy to give out his address on the internet. I’m sure you understand. Like I said, NOT IMPLYING ANYTHING. It’s more a safety lesson for Elyjah. But I’m sure he appreciates the gesture. Hope that didn’t come off the wrong way.

Oh, and Elyjah: Keep building, buddy. And be SAFE!!

Ya that came off wrong! I don’t need a cop telling me anything for my own good. You are all of what is wrong with this country acting like normal people cant ship a kid a few tools. I live no where near this kid I am a happily married man I am A registered nurse. I care for dying kids all the time. I am not a pervert and I have nothing to fear ABOUT ASKING THE KID TO PM ME HIS ADDRESS I didn’t put it out here for any one else to see and I have a solid reputation in this community. For god sakes I am very insulted by your 2 cents worth. You and all cops spend too much time in the shit holes of the world so you think the whole world is like the sick world you live in. I have news for you it is not that way here where I live we have had 0 murders in my town for the past 2 years and the last murder was two gangs from another city that drove into my town shooting at each-other and a kid got killed. A bad day for my home town. I was raised in the wood-shop I know what it is like to have no tools and a lot of talent. I have waited to see if this kid was serious and I put this on my calendar if he is still woodworking his care package will get sent to him and he will know that there are good folks in the world. People can care about the kids involved in the thing they love the most for me that would be woodworking or music. I gave away 7 guitars to students who could not afford them over this past year. I do that work with Steve Miller and it is a great cause to give a kid who wants to learn to play a real high quality one thousand dollar guitar. I have also given tools to other young woodworkers on Wood Magazines forum and I will never stop doing the right thing and that is teaching kids to be good wood workers and giving their tool box a hand at having enough tools to actually make something. do you realize 13 was the age of consent in California till the 1980 era and kids of 13 are aloud to be at home alone in most states they need to learn how to tell the freaks from the friends and the need to be smart this shelter your kids mentality is what causes nieve children to be vonerable to the sick bastards that are out there to hurt kids. Kids need life lessons at an early age you cant lock your kids away in a room till they are 18 and then expect them to function in the real world. This is a woodworking site and we need to nurture young men and lady’s that want to learn this craft. When I was young we had shop Class we have abandoned our children and have forced them to have a college is the only way mentality. And While I am pro education I don’t think this is realistic. In fact the stats prove it in 1975 the entering class of freshmen from high schools in the 3 districts in my area 97 percent of these students either graduated or got a ged and either entered the workforce or they went on to college. that means of the students that went to school 97 percent succeeded in getting their exit credential. Today in the same 3 districts the number has dropped to 62% the thing that changed was the end of teaching the trades in high-school and Jr high. we have kids that don’t know how to do anything but play video games and text their friends on the smart phone they don’t need to have . So Alfa when a kid tries to work the wood and his parents cant or wont support him in getting the basic tools he needs to get the job done I will always step up and help that kid out if i can god knows the cops wont teach a kid any trade or any thing that will end up making the kid employable. as a profession cops have forgotten their job description to protect and to serve. ask your self this Tyler what was the last time you served anyone I mean really served them and if you can honestly say you have then ask your self have you ever protected anything . odds are if your honest you cant say yes to this because your too busy only chasing CRIMINALS. `
