    Odd request, purple dyed wood??

    Maple Burl Googly Eyes

    Very neat, I have several blocks and slabs I have not been able to shape into scales because I know as I start to shape and contour for fit, the design (grain) is going to change. It is like............, well I can't explain it. That's why I'm still looking at several blocks and slabs, and...

    Fresh take on a simple grinder

    Yeah, he mentioned his background was . His tools seemed to "get the job done", that is what I got from it! His choice of metals, doesn't mean he couldn't take "super steel" to the grinder and start some sssssserious, knives

    Fresh take on a simple grinder

    My son said the same thing! (he just turned 15, so, I had to explain). My take on that, is that he knows his tools, and compromised safety for sake of the video. I didn't see any flesh and blood flying, so I guess chest ex rays would be needed to fully understand the risk!

    Fresh take on a simple grinder

    I found this to be very interesting. This grinder looks like a flint stone machine, but when you see it operate, it is anything but! Take a look, and check it out in action on YouTube here: It is very interesting.

    What colors or grits Rouge should I use?

    Rouge(in all it's glorious colors) is designed for softer metal. You can find more aggressive polishing compounds, but taking a bead blasted hardened steel surface to"more shine", is a little over the pay grade for Dremel! I would forget that, and move to sanding.

    best way to heat a shop?

    Commercial stabilizing set up

    I think the curing part is the easier part. I can see metal ductwork with maybe a heat source and fans blowing from one end, over the treated wood, and out a vented exit (fumes are forced away from heat source) . Maybe a hotplate(burner with rheostat for temp control) with fans or heatguns...

    Commercial stabilizing set up

    Tracy, looking at your knives, I get the feeling you can make anything "work". I've been thinking about trying a stainless steel keg, like soft drink syrup is dispensed from in fountain drink machines. They have a fitting on top for pressurizing with C02, so I don't don't see why one couldn't be...

    My latest folder.

    That's a very nice knife! It looks like file work on the spine? Would love to see photos if that's the case.
