          Yeah Rick, I'm with Callynne. Let us know if you want to start selling them. I'd love to have a nice hand made carving knife. Beautiful job.

              Glad you like seeing my knives, but I make them in my spare time, so most end up going to carving shows for raffles.

              I would be happy to show (in detail) the process of making one if anyone would be interested.

                  I for one would really like to see the process used for making knives if they can turn out like the ones you make. Thanks for offering and I am looking forward to seeing your post on this.

                    Rick: Nice looking knives, I agree I would like to see the knife making process step by step.

                    thanks

                      I know I will never, ever make a knife but I'd sure be interested in seeing how it's done! Callynne

                        I would definately like to see the whole process. Are there any special tools required to make these knives? I would love to make a couple for myself.

                        I sometimes wish that I had a certain shaped blade while I'm trying to carve something. It would be great to make one up rather than searching for something that may or may not exist!!

                          Very beautiful work Rick.
                          Looks like I need to spend more time on the handle when I make my next one. I usually spend hours shaping the blade and minutes on the handle.

                            Okay, I will start photographing the process of making an ebony handled carving knife with a 1-1/2 inch blade.
                            When finished, I will post it on Picturetrail with descriptions of the process.

                              I decided to make the handle from Maple burl because lines will not show up well on ebony.

                                It was a tough choice on the miter gauges---based on recommendations here. I researched the Kreg and the Incra. They were pretty much tied. I let fate decide it. Went into my nearest 2 hardwood stores. #1 sold Kreg, but they were out of stock and didn't know when an order would come in that...

                                Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.

                                Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

                                As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...
