Christmas Knives.

This was the first year I had things together enough to get some things done in the shop for christmas presents.  Last post I showed the pictures from the whiskey cabinet, the other christmas gifts that came out of the shop were a couple knife and cutting board sets.

I got the knife blades from Woodcraft.  They came as a kit with rivets that were indicated as optional.  Bubinga was used for the knife scales and was epoxied onto the tang.  I used 5min epoxy which I turned out to not be the best choice.  A slower setting epoxy would be better.  

The cutting boards as simple, curly maple with a Bubinga strip down the center.

And here is a picture of one in use.  Overall the knife kits were made for great gifts.
