Hearts & Crafts 3

This Sunday was the third Hearts & Crafts show at Java's Coffee. This was my most successful show to date.

Thanks to Lisa Barker for organizing another terrific show, and thanks to all my friends who stopped by to say hi(and to buy stuff!) See you all next time.

Time to carve up some fresh inventory!

Splitting wood w/an old tire

This is one of those "why didn't I think of that" ideas. A tire is attached to the chopping block, holding in place all the wood to be chopped, even after it is first split. Practical and efficient.

ML Knives custom whittler

My first custom whittling knife is nearly complete! Matt from ML Knives sent me some in-progress photos. First is a pic of the hand-forged blade.

And now the finished knife with handle and pin. I absolutly love the piece of maple he chose for this project.

Matt is making up a desk sheath for the knife as well. I can't wait to take this beauty carving!
