2x72 grinder build

finally, after nearly 20 years of knife tinkering, i got around to building a 2x72 grinder.  built it according to dcknives diy build.  the wheels, d plate and platen are from origin blademaker.  the legs are made from old bed frames.  the baseplate and body is made from scrap steel i had from other projects.  the 1hp motor was in a friends garage.  still have a few finishing touches to make.  also waiting on an order of belts to arrive.






propane forge


finally got the propane forge up and running.  the burner was made by cgr customs.  i bought the fire bricks on ebay.  it's not ideal but it will get me working on hot steel till i can upgrade.

Poor Man's Skookum Bush Tool

I read Renny's post on Bushcraft USA where he made a Condor Woodlaw in the shape of a Skookum Bush Tool.  This is my attempt.  The scales are orange burlap with a black burlap liner.  I made the scales in my scale press.  Pins are brass corby bolts.  Grand total....$30

Please excuse the crummy pics.








God Bless Yall.
