New folding knife

I have just finished making a folding knife, my first.

I didn’t make all the bits, I ordered some off the web and put it all together with a bit of enamelling and some woodwork with a thought to selling it…. maybe others too. It was basically a trial run.

Well, it worked out OK I think for a $50 or $60 price tag. Whether or not it would be worth doing more …. I’m not sure.

The wood is from a local oak, a burr [burl], the steel is medium quality and the brass has a few little impurities…. I’ve already got new scales (the wooden bits) for my next one.

…and I’m well into my next project, a little side table … after I’ve finished my oval mirror frame, which is proving to be a very difficult thing to make.

This is for my oak side table… I have got some recycled ebony to inlay into it….This is the design for the top.

Anyway, will post more when the mirror frame is finished..
