Another Update!

Hey Folks,
  I finished the Disston D-23 crosscut saw that I had been working on!  I'm really happy, and proud of the results.  I'm working on a full write up on it and I'll try to post it really soon.  I've already started the next saw, so I'll get some pictures put up of that as soon as I take some.  I've also completed my first set of knife scales.  I made these out of reclaimed mahogany from an old entry door.  This was a really fun, simple project and I'm already looking for my next knife!  And the last picture here today is my next project.  I don't want to give away what it is just yet, but I will tell you that it is fly fishing related, and it's to replace an item that I've always wanted, but always hated that they're made out of Chinese plastic!  Mine is going to be solid walnut!  I'm making it entirely with vintage handtools, no power equipment will be used at all!
  I hope you're all doing well.  Keep the sawdust flying!
My Disston D-23 Skewback Crosscut saw.  Ready for to be sharpened and put back to work.  I'm extremely happy with the way it turned out!

My first stab at making knife scales! Sorry, couldn't resist the pun!  This is a Sarge knife kit.  I had a lot of fun with it and can't wait to do another!

My next project in the works!  That's a number 16 Russel Jennings auger going into some solid walnut.  It really needs a good sharpening!
