    Justin that's a beautiful setup! I got some finished up the last few days. First is a 6" fillet in 0.070 aeb-l and hybrid scales.
    Next is an 8 1/2" fillet in 0.070 aeb-l and curly, spalted maple burl sourced locally and stabilized in cactus juice by my wife.
    Lastly I re-handled a kitchen knife in white oak stabilized in house with a blue/green ctek inlay and orange g10 liners and spacers.

    Have a couple of knives laid out to be drilled, and one ready for my makers mark.

    Added a 3 axis DRO's to my mini mill.

    I've been wanting to do this since I got it. Shouldn't have waited so long. Best upgrade I've made yet.

    I checked them against my Interapid dial indicator and they are right on. Plenty good enough for what I need.

    It took a bit more work than I anticipated. Some fabricating, plenty of drilling and tapping and LOTS of making sure everything is square and parallel.

    Not bad for about $125

    Pretty happy with how this one is turning out. It is 1084 differential heat treated. Not even etched and the hamon sticks out like a sore thumb.

    Getting ready to tape these guys up and start shaping. Sorry for the Acetone smears. I don't worry about getting them much cleaner until they are finished. Handle from top to bottom. African Blackwood, Koa, Curly Maple, and some Walnut that I can't wait to see finished.

    One down three roughed in. That walnut is crazy. I can't get a good picture. It was soaking up the oil like crazy. 13 more coats and it will really shine.

    really great looking knives, Ty. I have had the same issue with walnut. The stuff is rock hard but will absorb it's weight in oil. I went searching for tips and tricks and discovered that this is a known characteristic of walnut and gun stock makers who do a lot of walnut seal it first. I gave that a shot and it really did simplify the finishing process greatly. I used Birchwood Casey "Sealer and Filler" first. Sand back to bare wood, then TruOil. Really helped me get a smooth finish without needing all 834 coats of oil I had been doing previously.
