Hi all.

Thought id introduce myself by showing off the first frame ive got as far as oiling and finishing. Ive never bothered before, so making it look nice is new to me.

I made this originally for the single tool challenge using my childhood pocketknife. I just never got around to signing up to the forum.

With a combination of it being very comfortable in the hand, and finding the burnishing wasnt going to hold very well with this wood, I decided to turn it into something more user friendly. When it turned out nice, i thought, why not try BLO and wax.

The wood is commonly called White Cedar here, but I think Chinaberry better identifies it https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melia_azedarach. Really nice wood to work with as long as you dont need a smooth finish.

Its fast becoming my favourite to shoot. The grip is so comfortable and it sits so steady in the hand.

Album.
