Looks nice Diesel, I think you may have inspired me to give it a try!

Thanks Jeff. It really isn't too bad. Here is a link to Tim's WIP thread that I used as a guide: Saya WIP(Click Here)
Also think I've come up with a cool idea for a Pin for the saya, but want to work on it this weekend before I spill the beans. Will definitely be different, but will be fitting for me.

Nice job Diesel - that looks very nice!
On another topic, I've always been curious as to your forum name. Are you a diesel mechanic or something?

Not a mechanic by trade, but I had at once attempted a little side business with accessories and such, work just doesn't allow me enough free time to really make something of it. I have a F-350 with the7.3L Powerstroke that I drag race for fun whenever I get a chance. It's got some work done to it, 90% of it I do myself. Mostly run bracket racing.
Cooking is a passion that I wish I could spend more time on. Hence the reason I ended up here.

Another couple quick photos. I need to touch up the oil after cleaning up around the pin hole and then I'll use a real camera instead of my phone. Only question I have is how far do the saya pins sitck out of the back side of the saya? I decided to make this a Redneck Japanese fusion saya.

LOL, love the brass as a pin!!!! 1/4" is fine to stick out the back. I use guitar bridge pins and leave them full length.
Go to Harbor Freight, they have 1x30's for like $50 or $60 if that much and they go on sale.

Thanks guys. Was struggling to figure something out as I didn't want to pay more in shipping than the 1 bridge pin was going to cost me. Decided it would be something different and fun.
Hoping to pick up a belt sander from Harbor Freight or Sears on Friday. I have a few old knives that I want to try and rehandle. Just waiting on the Corby bolts to show up.
