I'm not sure if video links work, but these are the handles before I glued them. Hidden dowel method.

Some ECarta I made recently. My favorite is on the left, from an old power supply.

Mark Green at the smelt at the last Big Blu meet. It looked like it came out well. We did the old spicy pepper sacrifice ritual.

I Like your knives, Ecarta is pretty great as well.

For many years I carted around 6 massive old motherboards with very distinctive components, always wanted to mount and hang them on the wall but lost them somewhere in my travels.  First time I saw the Ecarta I wanted them back bad!

How do you prep them?

I screw the boards to my workbench table, just diagonal screws will do. There is a scraper I made from a piece of curved leaf spring, just a 30 degree or so bevel keeping one side flat. It looks like a giant version of what you would use to carve the inside of a Japanese scabbard. I just keep a 120 grit belt on my grinder to keep it sharp and go to town. The edge will shear the pins, components, and everything without digging into the fiberglass board, and it leaves behind the solder in the holes so it polishes up really shiny. Once both sides are done I clean all surfaces with acetone, drill small holes in the corners, and tie 4-layer "booklets" together. Spread some System Three T88 epoxy on each layer that will be stuck together, layer the booklets in some parchment paper, put a foam mat on top, and all the cinder blocks you can muster. Once it has cured for a day the parchment comes right off and it is nicely solid.
