Hello

This a letter opener I’ve done this afternoon

This is the first time I turn a project like this one.

A simple project but not really easy to make

Comments welcome

Have a nice day

Nice piece, Jack, and well made. What is the particular challenge doing tool or turning such spindle ? Thanks.

Best,

Serge

Hello Serge

Finally I’m not sure that is a good project because when I open a letter there is a bill inside !!!

So, keep it to open only envelops that carry checks ! Or tell yourself that it’s the price to pay to have fun while turning. I like this piece and I may try it on day, when sure a check is coming my way !

Best,

Serge, across the pond

Very Nice Project Indeed Jack! Great Workmanship!

You beat me to it though. I was going to say… “Of course this for Personal Letters only. NO BILLS ALLOWED!”

Thanks For Sharing!

Hello

Thanks to all for the kinds words

In the future I think I will make several with different wood and perhaps use my scroll saw to cut ” No bill”

Wait and see …
