I went out to the shop to grind. Flipped the switch on the grinder and got an error light on the controller. Something shorted out according to the "slow blink" light. Haven't been able to figure out what yet.

Hoping it's still in warranty. The controller was $600 and the motor was $250. Not looking forward to replacing them after virtually zero use.

Bummer. I hate sinking money into stuff that doesn't work...

I cannot remember what kind of wood I used. Smelled almost like cinnamon as I was working it.

When I've got my pennies lined up, I want to start making my own sheaths. I think I'll start with Kydex/thermoform sheeting sheaths. Which leads me to the next round of porn. Covering up that naked steel:

Thanks all.

This one is for my grandpa's birthday. I tried my hand at a sheath. It came out pretty mediocre. Definitely a whole different skill set that I'm not quite ready to dive into.

Can't wait to get started on the next one.

So I have two knives in the pipe. They are the last two I need to do for other people. One is for classic, and is going to put the other one I sent to shame. The other is for a friend.

I think I'm going to quit making knives for a while after those are done. I don't have the time (read: not willing to sacrifice other things) to make the endeavor worthwhile. I think I'll refocus on my software development skills and work toward some more interesting things in that arena.

I find that I will take up a hobby and run with it for a while, and then get bored after too much focus in it. But it usually comes back. Or something similar.


It's about time for me to build a canoe. Or two. It's a lot to bite off though.

This is true. Not the canoe, though, not for me. The obsessive knitting has squeezed out the obsessive concertina playing. I wish I could do both at once.
