Beautiful. Do you lubricate the blade with anything (hide glue, maybe?) while you’re using it?

Osage and walnut? The wood combo looks neat.

The hammer is used to smooth veneer after hide glue has been applied. The hide glue is worked from above with the hammer; more can be applied if everything is not smoothed out. The insert is made of aluminum. I haven’t had a chance since it was given to me. I’ve been “stocking up ” on veneering supplies :-) Myron knows what that’s about.
The wood is beautiful. The osage orange comes from a tree on his Russ’ Grandfather’s farm.
