Thanks guys! Yeah, the burlap laminate is becoming a major fad here recently, for good reason I think! I've met several people in the GA knifemaker's Guild who are making various forms of burlap laminate. More power to them! We made the mistake of doing up some in the evening as it was getting too cold and it didn't set up right and had to be scrapped. The scary thing was it was with a customer's heirloom fabric! Luckily we had enough left over that we were able to scrape together enough to do a handle from- whew.

Nice! Are you guys using a press to compress it? I built up a press and put a 20 ton bottle jack in it and squeezed all of the epoxy out of one batch...oops! I found a 6 ton jack seems to work well!

Fabric like Denim and stuff works well, too. It's fun to play around with it!

David's the laminate master, so I can't give great details on the process, but we have some presses he made, but he compresses mostly with big C-clamps and they turn out well.
