Nice stuff. What's the plan for the knife handle?

“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

My buddy gave me 2 blocks of wood. I'm not sure what type of wood it is. I'm thinking about using that. Cutting them in half and flatten them out .

 

I was able to get a grizzly2x72 and a vertical disc sander off Craigslist,$300/each

Score!

Don't forget to drill the pin holes before HT. IMNSHO, that knife would look great with some metal bolsters.

They would look good! The reminds me I need to go get a cheap drill press, probably harbor freight for now.This is the first time having my own shop so I am slowly getting tools

 

On a side note.my wife asked me what I wanted for Christmas and I sent her a link for a carbide file guide!
