Yo from northh Idaho ,

hey gang!

It's been a loooooong time since my last post! Getting closer, finally, to having a shop set up for work (although we are never gonna be finished ) and have a couple of pics of a frame handled bowie. Last year, while rummaging thru an antique store, I found an old hatchet that caught my eye. The handle looked like a Jason Knight/Nic Wheeler special. Anyway, i chopped off the handle, split it in half and, voila! I have a pattern for the fiddleback maple I'm using

Nothin like being lazy (maybe innovative), huh?
