A few as gifts, sold/selling a couple.

I've finished the handles on a few Opinel Ebauche. Found out that Olivewood can be fairly toxic when sanding & it aerosolizes. I broke out in a poison oak like rash. Was ok to handle otherwise, but ended up giving it to a good friend as a gift. Made another in Walnut for myself.

I recently made some nice big strops and sent one to a guy who sold me a knife and we kinda became internet pals lol. It was a fun project and it was gratifying to be able to do something nice for somebody without anything in return, other than pics of the shirogami kiridashi he uses on it!

^ some awesome stuff!

I've found something I have some talent in - cooking. First pic, coconut flour chia biscuits ( 1 net gram carb ). Second, 1/4 cheeseburger pie ( 4.3 net grams carbs ).

Really cool off beat stuff here fellas. :)

I used to build all my own fishing rods in my younger days. This one has survived incredible well. It’s a Land Based Game stick I put together about twenty five odd years ago. The blank (bought in ‘83) is an old school Ugly Stick 6’-6” 30lb Game stick. It’s a stump puller coupled with a Penn Inter’ 30W reel. Dusting it off and thinking about doing some land based shark fishing brings back some happy memories.

I butted it up with Aftco reel seat and gimble fitting and either Japanese or America quality (can’t remember) Duralon grips which I formed.

And some LC cheese bread (mozzarella) yesterday afternoon.

"You ever make anything yourself?"

Don't know if it counts but I worked in construction from the age of 14 to 16 years of age, and made a lot of things as part of a crew. I've done everything from run architectural blue/black ammonia prints, fell trees, lay sod, paint primer on wood, lay flat and vertical concrete, and work as an electrician.

My work is all over central and northern Illinois.

That would be the way to go Lance, for sure. Bonito go pretty good and our big Sea Mullet make good dead bait.

My daughter’s husband is showing interest of late but I’m slowly and surely turning into a sloth. I s’pose dusting off the old rod was a baby step in the right direction but you know better than most, it’s bloody hard work and I’ve had an aversion to that for a while now. Ah, hahaha, ah, hahaha, ah, hahaha! :) :rolleyes:

Thank you! They are copper and nickel, all made from quarters and the smaller one is from dimes. I'm still struggling with with cold shuts, where the material will not fuse together properly. I'm using a small two brick forge and a hammer to make them, I think I would have better luck using a press. I'd like to get a nice billet to make some swiss army knife scales or a ring, but I still need to keep practicing to get a billet without the cold shuts.

I love seeing all the things you all are making! I find that anytime I talk with someone that likes making things (anything), we tend to have many things in common. I refer to people like myself that like to make things as having the "maker gene". These days I spend most of my time making knives and knife related tools and fixtures. Even though knives are my favorite thing to make now, I generally like the process of making anything.

Here's a few of the things I've enjoyed making..

An antler handled ferro rod.

Some of the most satisfying things I've made have also been the simplest..
Like this granite oven I made in the wilderness. The granite slab inside cooked 3 fish perfectly in 6 minutes. I didn't want to leave the oven behind. :p
