    Thanks guys, it’s an enjoyable hobby to me, just not physically able to do as much now, but I enjoy all I can of it. Busy today, did get to do a little more shaping late tonight, probably can tell much by looking...

    Most times I look at a project and think I could do that. This is NOT one of those times! Thanks for posting

    I was going to say something similar to this^^^
    Thanks for sharing the process in such detail. Im certain it inconveniences you to stop and take pics for us but it is much appreciated.
    Also like seeing QC right there with you making sure things are done right lol. (Glad im not the only one that has grown attached to a useless dog.)

    I’ll reiterate others comments... I check often for pics and really enjoy seeing the end products.

    The riser on this one is the most unique I’ve ever seen... really like it.

    Lookin good, do you buff it or just seal it with something.That material sure would make a beautiful knife handle.That stuff would buff out and leave a nice deep shine. A nice five or six inch drop point ,with that material in the handle would make a nice set.

    This is my first time using this material so it’s new to me, I usually use wood on risers, and seal them with Tru-Oil. I will probably spray this with the same satin polyurethane that I use on limbs.
