    Stabilised timber for Perth Knife show

    I have put together a few pics of some of the stock i have been stabilising lately in preparation for the Perth knife show.

    It has taken many hours/days/weeks over the last 6 months or so to get this lot done , hardwoods take a great deal of time under vacuum and just as long to soak , repeat , pressurise , cure and clean up , I don't believe in taking short cuts and only aim for the best quality that can be achieved no matter how long it takes.

    I think the end results pretty much speak for themselves and i have been getting some really favourable feedback over the last few years from not only our home grown aussie knifemakers but also a growing base of clients overseas.

    If any of our ABF members get to the show please stop in and say hi

    Hi Mark, beautiful blocks as always, got to wonder why I try and make a few of my own. I see a couple of hollowed out blocks, is that just to show the penetration of the cactus juice?

    Those ones are intended as business card holders mate , they are pieces that my mate Charlie rescued out of the scrap pile , He milled an angled slot into them and with a bit of sanding and a couple of coats of varnish , he figures if we can sell enough for a bourbon each we'll both be happy
