M390 wood and G10

Postby toomzz » Sat Jul 09, 2011 6:15 am

Hello forum,

freshly finished in Europe, two wonderfully crafted M390 mule-blanks. One in black ebony and the other in ghost digicam G10.
Both handles are glued and corby-screwed. Next step is to see what this steel is up to (and ship the other to a smiling forumite :D )

Enjoy and cheers,
Tomas

Thanks, I am experimenting with woodtreatment now. I use stabilized wood, however I want to make them as 'user-proof' as possible. The ebony is lighter than the snakewood I used before and sucks in oil better.
The treatment right now is soak the handle in cooked linseed oil a couple of times and than treat it with beeswax. Any ideas?
Fact stays; G10 is most Bad MF-proof... :D

Cheers,
Tomas

Ebony is already very stable. Once oiled and waxed, it's about as "user-proof" as you can get without doing the actual "stabilizing" procedure of vacuum-treating the wood with acrylic.

Good job. Both looks lovely. But as much as I love wood, in this couple I like G10 more.

Thanks forum, here is an additional picture of the other side of the mules.
I am still contemplating :D to do some more stuff to the ebony; making texture in the wood somehow.... :confused: add? carve? mill?

Any ideas are welcome...
