As some have read, I harvested a plum tree a while back. When the swap came up I figured I’d give it a try and use the plum wood.
2 Try Squares in Plum with a brass front piece. the brass is adhered with CA glue. The blade of the squares are adhered into the groove again with CA.
Finish is BLO thinned 50/50 with Mineral Spirits.
As an added touch I used a heat transfer technique to put the name of the swap on the blade of the larger square the process is outlined here.
I also turned a pen from some of the same wood. Modified Slimline (Fatline?) with a custom band of Walnut. Finish is on this CA.
