120mm Parer with stabilized sapele from Myron at DreamBurls. Weird wood to work with, but pretty neat.

Ha, soon enough Rook. I'll be working on a passaround knife some time in the future.

Are you really located in Africa? That will be quite an interesting route.

It's not a knife, but it's certainly something I'm proud to have made :) The bench, sander, and grinder were assembled by me. The disk setup was generously given to me by Charles Vestal, a really fantastic maker; all I had to do was get a motor and disk (then make the belt guard for safety). I had a lot of help with the lighting and electricity, but I wired the motors/switches myself.

Finally I can get some stuff done, assuming I have time between my classes and club.
