Well I was watching andyboys video on building one of these and thought ” Hey I need one of those” you know what I’m talking about right?..... I’m not the only tool -a- holic right…? Anyways, here it is. Its not as pretty as Andy’s, but it will do I guess. Used walnut for the whole thing. And like Andy’s, I used a jigsaw blade filed down for the knife. Cuts good and is very accurate. I tried to get a good pic of the marker in action but I’m not a very good picture taker. Well thats it hope yall like it. Thanks again andyboy for the video!! Heres the link for his in case you missed it:

Really nice.
Warm color and looks nice to hold.
It will be a friend, I’m sure.
