Been working on a new line of products .. See these knives i have recently been working on .
Any ideas on where to get exotic woods that are not crazy priced ?
I experimented with no finish on these knives.. Just polished with buffing wheel and polishing compound..

thanks for viewing

I love the kitchen knife, did you make the blade?

Really nice knives. I want to start making some. I get my wood from Bell Forrest Products. Not sure about $ compared to others. Bell is only a few miles from my shop. Where do you get the blades?

Nice work. I really like the buffing system I have, too. Great for small projects. Although you mention that you didn’t do the forging work, I really dig the hammered texture on the large knife.

Nice looking knives. I always watch Craigslist for some smoking deals on exotic woods. It does happen every once in a while. Otherwise, I pay the price and pick some out at the Woodcraft store near me. Try looking at PSI (Penn State Industries), they have about the most reasonable prices that I’ve run across. Keep up the good work!

Try looking around you, or ask people in your area. I recently started buying my hardwoods from a small woodworker’s store (with a HUGE wood room) in southern Delaware. They’re not on the internet…but my dad happened to drive by the store one day and told me about them. Much cheaper and larger selection than Woodcraft or anywhere I’ve found online, plus you get to pick out the exact piece you want and they will cut it to the size you want to buy. Everything’s rough sawn, but they have the equipment to join or plane it for you.

If you’re anywhere near southern Delaware, it’s called Chesapeake Woodworkers Supply in Millsboro, DE. I’ve chatted with a few people in the store that drive for 2 or 3 hours to get wood from there. Luckily it’s only 15 minutes from my parent’s house.

Try pallet wood from factories that get parts shipped from overseas. That’s better than crazy priced because it’s free!

Hmmm. Interesting. Looks like you tried to emulate Kramer’s pin… Good job nonetheless
