shop time [Apr. 14th, 2010|02:31 pm]
Doug Ayen
Got some shop time in last night; worked on finishing up the little hunter for this weekend's Hammer-In's "iron in the hat" auction. Got a good way along: the handle (bloodwood) is now shaped, sanded, and the slot for the tang is burned in; blade is etched, though I might redo that as it came out a bit blotchy; and the bolster is fitted, but not shaped. I may add some decorative pins, depends on how much time I can squeeze in.

In the remodeling arena, kitchen cabinets have been dry-fitted; the countertop company is coming by tomorrow to measure and template.
