    Looks like the forum software is either automatically resizing or letting large files post. (Edit to add: it resized it down to 151kb)

    This is a 1.84mb file and I didnt get that "file too large' error.

    Looks to me like the top picture has more detail.

    @mitch4ging how do I not remember ever hearing this song? Senility? Mandela effect? Rift in the space, time continuum?

    Extra lashings for me tonight at the Prine Shrine.

    He finally decided he needed a sheath for his wooden bowie.

    Working on it made me think of my first cap gun set I got, it was in Tombstone, AZ. Had a tooled sheath with fake turquoise studs. This project actually made me want to start carving leather for once.

    Pretty hokey, but solid gold to a 4 yr old. Ready to clean up and dye (he wants it brown like my Serrano sheath).

    Gotta have your name on there. He totes his Boowie knaf around in his sleeve or his waistband all the time, I have a feeling he'll sleep in this rig.

    That'll dry a lot lighter, and should raise some eyebrows in town, anywhere else they'd call child protective services on me!

    Finally got two pieces welded up and ready to go. Now, if I can get the damn forge to dry I can play around. Been raining for the last week and 40 degrees :mad:

    So am I, had learn how to do basic forge welding we'll see how it turns out!
    Yes it does, between Christmas and New Years I washed the car in a freaking tee shirt, there has been nothing but rain and fog the last few days and the humidity has got to be 200%.

    I relined the forge with kaowool and painted a nice thick coat of hi-temp cement a few days ago and it's still sticky so I brought in the basement and turn the dehumidifier on to get this to dry. I would much rather have it 10 degrees out and two feet of snow! I'll try and do a WIP if I think of it. Watched about 20 different vid's on it and seems pretty basic just need to follow process to get a solid billet.

    My apologies for not being around for the past few days. Work has been running me ragged.

    To make matters worse, I found out that Mack doesn't know how to pirate. o_O

    I got home from work on Monday and there was a box from Oregon waiting for me. Inside was a Redmeadow Corsair and a Julio Diaz 710 neck knife. :eek:

    That's some backward pillaging and plundering right there.

    Mack, I can't thank you enough. I've had both on my desk since Monday and they've been a distraction ever since.

    I feel like I should type another paragraph or two to express my gratitude but I've only recently been able to get over my speechlessness.

    70? :eek: I'm on my way.

    Saturday here is going to be 32°/18° with an 80% chance of rain/snow/ice/slush mix. After that it just stays cold with a couple single digit nights next week.
