    In woodworking the adage is "measure twice. Cut once." I think that applies here also.

    As far as what I am working on, my company is getting a bunch of orders. We specialize in work boats and supporting equipment to remove trash and weeds from water ways. Our customers are predicting a deluge of trash and weeds as activity decreases in their areas and the inability to actively clean do to stay in place orders. Currently designing a towable conveyor that a boat can offload into.

    They use a design like that on the lake by my house.

    I am wondering if the stay at home will make the average person fertilize the heck out of his yard and wash it all down to the lake. Even more than normal.

    We might have a lot of "pretty" lawns though.

    I had to make a little run to the Hardware store. But while I was there I picked up a little piece of Walnut board. Got home and cut it up for scale material. You can never have enough I say.

    I also put together a couple of razors. There were just blades so I dug through my drawer and came up with two sets of scales that fit perfectly.
    This first one is from the Electric Cutley co.

    This one I had made some scales for but I was just not happy with them. So here it is in a good set of Black Horn. Medaille 89 (French Blade).

    Nice work, Jerry-That 1st one has almost exactly the same profile as an Ern Ator, so I like it!

    I also have a drawer full of figured walnut blanks if you want some.

    Nice work.

    Thanks, guys.

    The Walnut I got was just sold in board feet so it's not fancy. But it should make for some nice scales. Not sure I know what Figured Walnut is Aaron. I put together another razor this morning. Cast Steel Warranted is all it says. Thick tang. I put it in some molded butterscotch scales. It's just 2 pieces that fit well together.

    Last night I honed up 5 razors. I need to work on figuring out why the wedges I hone seem to be lacking towards the heal half of the blade. I don't have this issue with more hollow razors.

    I now have 5 more to hone this evening. I'm not used to having this amount of time off. And now I can't go anywhere so I might have to start drinking more or something.

    Titanium is so very stiff. How thin is that titanium?

    All your wedges are like that Jerry, or just the ones with a strong smile?

    That blade looks good in those scales.
