I have been a beaver leader for the last 4 years and this is my first year as a cub pack leader. We are about to start work with knives so I thought I’d whip up a few practice knives.
These are a Steve good pattern. I simplified it a bit as his has words on the handle. I was worried that with the rough handling these will have the letters may crack.
I used some scrap ply wood from the scrap bin. Starting off I ran it through my table saw to get it to the size I needed for blanks. I was surprised with the amount of blow out even though I user a 60 tooth finish blade in my saw. I really do need to bang together a 0 clearance solution.
I stack scrolled the parts and glued them up. A bit of sanding, spray lacquer and some paste wax later the knives were done. It was a neat fun project. Hopefully something the kids will pull out of a drawer in 10 years and being back some memories.
