    Another knife handle, this time in stabilised semi-burr elm.

    I was pleased with the result, my first attempt at stabilising, once done the bits sank in water so I got good penetration.IMG_2241.jpgIMG_2243.jpgIMG_2244.jpg

    I like the red line. It's a nice touch.
    You know your old when your sweetie says "lets go upstairs and make love" and you reply "honey, I can't do both."

    A very nice job on that and a lovely piece of wood to go with that blade. I have seen some with very very figured woods and they become exhibition pieces, it's a fine line between attractive/practical and that looks spot on. Again I to love the red line spacer, lovely touch. Great fit and finish too
