Here is one of the projects I am currently working on. If Joe T is peeved, let him speak.
It is ludicrous to believe that with the tools pictured I could even try to do justice to anyone else's work.



Profile -- the board is cargo-pallet wood.



If this were a cooking forum, would joeT say, "Hey! I didn't give you permission to use my recipe." ???????

Why u need knife for?
Brooklyn, It is to carve the wood after I cut it out with a coping saw, which I forgot to post. I bevel my work with a knife, then refine with files and sandpaper. Sometimes -- more often than not -- I change the design a little with my knife. My knife is my primary tool for woodwork.
Cheers, Bill (Dayhiker)

Ah, now I see where you're coming from. It'd have been courteous to have asked him but well whatever, it's well nice all the same. Kudos to Joe T as well; I voted for him. What does it. Look like.

Nice knife BTW. It's a Mora isn't it. I have a Mora 2000.

Did you use the knife to correct the saw cutting, smooth out marks or add detail? Sorry, I'm on the mobile again and I can't see clearly.

Don't worry, Dan. When and if I had posted the finished item, I certainly would have credited Joe for the design.

... I love to carve, I use the knives to bring the saw cuts into spec, then most of the time I start getting creative with the knife. But when I am trying to make something from my own sketches, I am very precise with my knife. (I hope
)

I also make the grooves for band-ties with my knife, then finish with round file (pictured).

nice work, dayhicker!!

apparently we use the same rudimentary tools. or as we say down here "nos vamos por las piedritas" (we´re taking the gravel road).
may be the slowest way to work a fork, but from my point of view, is the most fun and rewarding.



nice!!

Yes, it's a lot of fun to use hand tools. And since it's so slow, you have plenty of time to change things during the process.
And thanks Joe. It's a great design.
