  1. Hey Jim, I just recently discovered your works, and I really am speechless. It is such a pleasure to see your beautiful creations, the flow, the look... I'm in love with it! Do you have any tips on how you create these water-like flows, they really look like straight out of a river... Also, how do you finish the wood? Do you polish it with a polishing wheel?
  2. Again, thank you very much Chris! So you think it is okay to use this thread to post my videos? I thaught that most people on this forum already know the "basic" steps of knifemaking that i cover But will gladly follow your words... voliá!
  3. Grrrrrrrrreat knife! But I would also like to know how you antiqued the brass
  4. Absolutely stunning!

  6. Heyho, quick addition to this thread: I uploaded a making of to my youtube channel. I did not film any of the steps tho, I only took a few wip pics on the go I hope you like it
  7. Thanks for your input, I'll give it a try!
  8. Heya guys, I have owned a Wüsthof Sharpening stone (2000j) for quite some time, and I always used water when sharpening, everything worked fine... One week ago I had the glorious idea of using WD40 instead of water. I did not read very much about different types of sharpening stones and such, and I just now realised that this sharpening stone is meant to be used with water only... Is it true that the usage of oils ruin a waterstone? Because it definetely behaves different now... Can I somehow fix this by sanding down the surface? Can I use soap to get out the oil? I have no idea what to do Cheers
  9. Very nice!
  10. Absolutely stunning! I would love to see a few pictures of your fluting tools
  11. Thank you Chris ^^
  12. I am using a cutting device, dont know the exact english term, but here's what it looks like: First I cut a normal sized sheet into half and then cut off 3cm strips, it works pretty fast
  13. Hello guys, I just wanted to share with you my method of keeping everything organized when it comes to hand sanding, I build a "storage" out of plywood that has helped me a lot. Maybe this can be an inspiration for some of you to build your own little sanding-storage Cheers
  14. Really awesome! I dont think anyone minds that this is not a sharp or pointy thing
  15. Looks great already! Im looking forward to the finished piece - and happy filing! -
