Re: Red Ironbark- Pudgy Kitten/Butterfly

Thanks Bill....Shaman came off machine Tuesday PM after making SURE I didn't want to make any cuts. Maple was standing deadwood that blew off, and bark was loose on the right side and partly punky. Tested 3 different finishes yesterday on waste areas, and looks like I'll fully saturate with Linwax t...

Re: Knife Handles

May be boring reading to some, but just trying to pass it on hoping it may help others. (besides...I LIKE to Yatter:) When I bought Kitten model... also bought the Wolf/Moon m...

Re: Red Ironbark- Pudgy Kitten/Butterfly

Thanks Art and Joe:) The hardest part of this one was the Wood:) Couldn't find much info on it except it had a Janka of 2,800-3,200 and specific gravity of about 1.18, and "...not for fine detailed work..."!! I'll take a chunk of hard,heavy wood for a 3D any day of the week, but this was one of the ...

She loved ...
