Let's do something with those unfinished projects!

As many of you are aware, I don't frequent these forums as much as I have in years past. After getting into knifemaking in 2005 and becoming a founding member of the KCKA, I quickly found new and creative ways to use the tools that I was rapidly acquiring.

I got really busy with a number of projects, and these days, I am preparing to start a long term airplane build. Through it all, I have tried to keep the grinder working on a blade or two. I managed to get several done this past Christmas.

As a result of my 'on again, off again' knife making schedule, I have several unfinished projects on the bench. These projects range in style from mild to wild--tiny to huge. I'd like to get one or two finished before I start filling my shop with spruce and building jigs in the next couple of months.

Now, if I know knifemakers, I know that they have unfinished projects laying around. So..., how 'bout we get some done and make a KITH out of the effort. We could call it the 'Get 'er Done' KITH (even though I cant stand that guy). No theme beyond that...

Any interest?

Well, maybe we can revive this idea later.

I wonder if I have a bowie started anywhere...

BTW, I'm building a Pietenpol Air Camper.
