Here are a couple of rustic knife displays and me latest ” bandsaw blade knife”

The displays are about 15” wide and 4” high.
Live edge red cedar slab and cedar branches. Finished with shellac.

The knife handle is red cedar and pine laminated together, also finished with shellac.

I’m trying to get a few items made for my etsy store and these little slabs seemed perfect for knife displays.
Thanks for looking,

The knife handle is just spectacular. The rich color gives highlight to its beauty.

I was scratching my head trying to come up with a display stand for my cared canes. Thanx for the idea, bowtie. I’ve heard that copying is the best form of a compliment!

Very nice. The red cedar is gorgeous. One of my favorites. I recently purchased a custom made knife from a local artisan, and am looking for a good way to display it.

Have your say...
