    Default We Have Skills Too !!

    That's right, the title says it all.

    This thread is for the "rest of us",,,who don't make fancy brushes like Pixel, Andrew, Tin Tin, Trimmy and the other brush heads !

    For the rest of us who don't make fancy restored razors like Max, Glen, Sharptonn, Mike & now CHEVHEAD !

    This thread is for our talent to be displayed, because We Have Skills Too !!

    So guys feel free to post your work in this this thread & it don't have to be shaving related.

    I'll start it off with my work of art,,,, a leather belt loop , with silver clip attached. I made it over the past two days. You can hang your keys on it, a small umbrella for possible rainy days, a little flashlight, a rabbit's foot or anything that will attach to the clip.
    ,,,,and No, it's not for sale.

    Thanks for looking & post your work.

    I'll add some current WIP's
    these are a coupe of knives & sheaths made for my Grandson's (12 & 13)
    they chose their designs & we went from there

    the youngest went for a forged & hammer finished short hidden tang blade with gut hook in cow horn & matching flint

    the older went for a slightly larger all stock removal blade with layered G10 scales & matching flint

    more polishing & smoothing to go on the sheaths which I am leaving for them to do in their time once handed over
    their next visit will be to etch their names etc on the blades & then vinegar dip the lager G10 blade to bring out the Hamon.

    thanks for looking

    Nice stuff, guys.

    As for me, well ... most of my friends think that my ability to shave with a straight razor is the most impressive and arcane skill ever!

    I would love to work with leather, make some knives and have the patience to paint like that.

    I am IMPRESSED...

    Very cool where do you get models like that with the detail to attention?

    Anyway John , does drinking beer, smoking a cigar without falling out of my lawn chair count? Tc
    Even better advise, " don't impede on a 850# Harley with me aboard, then I don't care what your driving, my 10 takes care of it"

    I'll take those 4. Especially since it's the right time of year to be jigging!
