I bring the glue and glue by this week. That bench is plenty solid for How did Woody say Dolly Pardon called him?

Never saw the bid boxes but was glad to see the Blackberrys up and doing well. Rain boy we've had al ton of early rains this year. Plenty folks in bad shape and sufferin  in middle Tennessee and not far from us. Prayers to those folks under water down on the Harpeth.

I feel like if you mounted that knife stand on a wall it would make a cool coat hanger! but thats just me, i dont have enough knives to think about knife stands.  :)
Don't practice until you get it right. Practice until you can't get it wrong.

You are probably right D21, I don't do leather work[well not good] so most of the knives I build I put on stands, Got plenty of knives in sheaths to use when I need them.  :)

Thanks BJ,it was a good day. Had a good weekend also, very nice weather for a change , got some stuff done in the shop and also some meat and feathers. A few pictures. Got my bow finished for the raffle table, thought the name was appropriate . ;) Also Miss Joanie talked me out of one of my neck knives, ??? but since she ant going to wear it she wanted a stand to put it on, of course I got right on it. :)

Another Osage splice cut and ready to glue up and also splice I was told was very old Yew, turns out it was ERC, ::)  very clean and good even thin sap wood but still not Yew. :) Should have known but really couldn't tell until I went to clean it up, then the smell gave it away. :)

Then Saturday morning was Turkey time, Shawn and I went out and was done with a double by 7:30, a pair of Jakes, meat and feathers, hard to beat that. BigA mounting the last vice for the shop, should have plenty of vices and more room in the shop at the Classic. :) Files softened and ready to shape into more knives, just what I need, more knives. ;) :) :)

Fire went well. :) I got another Osage sliver turned into a nice bow blank ready for someone that wants a 40lb bow, really cool stave with a couple of holes and some character. :)

Got the TwinOaks bow off the form and tillered out to 40@22 right now, looking for 48@28  it will also go on the raffle table at the Classic if i can get it done, after tillering Greg is going to do the tips and big A is going to finish it, Mark is making the string,it is from some really nice Osage we cut in 2002, I shaped it in 2012  Will H done some refining in 2016 and now for the finish work in 2021 so to say it is well seasoned is and under statement. :) :) Hope yall had a good one also.
