    The jury is still out. But the glue up went better than I was expecting as that was a lot of surface area to cover and then put it all together and clamp in under 5 minutes...

    I gotta tell ya I was a little nervous lol!

    Letting dry over night and start sanding and shaping tomorrow.

    This is the first time actually I've laid my eyes and hands on orange osage wood and like you say the color is beautiful.


    Ended up letting the epoxy cure 2 days. Cut the pins and started on the belt sander. Slow but sure so I can minimize any burn from the belt sander. Lots more to grind off.

    Finally found the edge of the tang all the way around. Round off the edges next up.

    My ability to recall lyrics from a song written in the 70's far exceeds my ability to recall why I walked into the kitchen.

    Hey Hawg!

    I ain't lying, that is one cool and well done project. If a bunch of us don't meet up at somebody's fire pit for BBQ, Bourbon and great Stories, shame on us!

    Great job!
