Very nice! How did you attach the blade? The kits that I get have a ferrule that’s not very good so I’d like to try something like yours. Thanks for sharing.

@Doe: I got this slicer kit in sort of a grab bag at the Utah Woodturning Symposium last year. It’s not a project I normally make. The handle on this one is plated and has some notches cut into it. It’s just a flat piece same as the cutter…it just narrows and has those little notches. It came with a ferrule but I didn’t like it (and I often don’t use the ferrules that come with screwdriver kits, either). So I just drilled a hole in the handle that was just the right size for the tang on the slicer. Then I took a cardboard box and cut a hole in it so that the handle would be held vertical, with the hole at the top. I put some epoxy in the hole and coated the tang on the slicer with epoxy. Then I inserted the cutter into the hole of the handle and left it alone for a few hours. Really pretty simple and worked out well.

Beautiful cheese slicer! The handle has a pretty shape and the wood is amazing.
