  • pocket knife handle

    A young guy at church had a pocket knife that had a broken handle on one side and the other side was coming off. He asked me if I could make him something to fix it.
    This is my fix. The handles are the same shape and size as the previous ones. They are made from mesquite.

    Good job Stephen. I know he was more than satisfied with that.

      I never figure on a handle that small but it do have a pretty grain pattern

        That is an unusual type of handle, & you did a fine job fixing up a new one. Very nice. I'm sure your friend loved it. Thanks for showing us.

          Thanks for the kind comments. I will give it to him Sunday before church. A few of us fellers talk hunting, shooting, woordworking, knife making and other stuff before church. Show off stuff too. It's fun.

            This is the puzzle, for some reason I usualy make my puzzels with thicker stock, sometimes 3/4 oak or pine or poplar. I have made puzzels in the past I just wanted to get some fresh ideas on blades and finish. I like the idea of applying shellac first that is if the paint sitll covers...

            No more waiting for weeks to start therapy. The sooner you use the replacement the better. Bruce was doing mild hand exercises the day after his surgery and bending slightly at the elbow. They expected him in pt for at least 6-9 months. He stopped in February and is doing home therapy, like lifting...
