I was making a crochet hook, and there was a worm hole through the blank, so I couldn’t complete it with this blank. So I made lemonade, so to speak. It’s about 5.5 inches long and 3/4 around at the largest part of the handle. I used the band saw to start the blade shape, and then my oscillating drum sander to shape the blade.

Whether a crochet hook or a letter opener. You picked some beautiful wood grain in this piece of olive wood!!!!! Then you matched some beautiful lines to set it off!!!!
