Heads up, Jay just informed me that the Gothic crosses are glued up, not from one piece. That said, it’s a good glue up because a quick glance didn’t reveal the seam to me on the top of the stack. 😁
On Instagram and YouTube I’m regularly asked what wood I’m carving because the chips are so smooth and beautiful. I just made some wine bottle holders from another creamy, white piece of 1-1/8″ thick northern US grown basswood (linden). I had to take a picture! There’s nothing like it!!😁👍😁👍
How to improve your grip when carving
I hadn’t thought of this until the other day when I was working on making knife handles in my shop.
When I was at the auto parts store I picked up some work gloves to help me hold knife blades during the handle process. I thought the sticky glove surface would help improve my grip. And it sure did!
I picked up a completed knife with the gloves on and my grip was locked on the handle with little effort! Why hadn’t I thought of this before?
Do you have trouble gripping your knife? Maybe your hands aren’t as strong as they used to be. Consider giving these gloves a try!
This Grease Monkey brand meets my needs. I’ll guess Harbor Freight and others sell them as well. I paid $10 for 10 pair.
Marty,One thing that continues to confuse me. You sharpen a bevel onto your knives. While Wayne Barton says to sharpen the knife to where there is no bevel. You both make very similar knives. So who’s right? Or what is the logic behind these two positions?
