And here’s the completed knife. This knife is a Victorinox Tinker, which I often carry in my pocket.

Swiss Army Knife In Progress

A couple of weeks ago, I saw some pictures of some swiss army knives that somebody had put custom wooden handles on. They were beautiful. I’ve always been a big fan of swiss army knives, and often carry one. I decided to try it out myself.

After several false starts, here are the scales (handles) that I made. They’re made from a hardwood called purpleheart, and the cross inlay is a polymer clay.

The long belated bookcase

This last week I finally finished the second of a pair of bookcases that I started over 2 years ago. Here they are, next to each other.

The sad thing is, even with the addition of a very sizable bookcase, we still don’t have enough shelf space for all our books. I need to make another one!
