Enzo Elver and burlap

i've been reading all the other diy'ers out there making their homemade handle material out of jeans, burlap, etc.  so i figured its time to try it.  i made a press out of 1x2 poplar, glued and screwed.  its 12" long.  i guess legally you cant call this micarta cuz that is a trademark name or something.  some are calling it mycarta, jeancarta, etc.

 the first set was made out of some tow strap i found in the ditch.  i washed it and cut it into strips and glued it all up.  the yellow is tow strap, green is pre-dyed burlap from wally world.

and here is the end result of my efforts.  picked up this      enzo elver from dlt trading for the guinea pig.  i like how it tuned out.

God Bless Yall!
