Update, March 5, 2015.
I’m still refinishing gun parts, making live edged projects, and wanted to come up with something easy and quick for an inexpensive small sale item at the Golden Hobby Shop in German Village. So these are very small scraps of walnut, worked on the drill press, and dipped in linseed oil (one coat so far, they’ll get a second, and then buffed). Each will get a manly charm of some kind–interesting washer or grommet or bearings–and a key chain, and then VOILA, will put them onto the stand I’m making this weekend. There’s still a knob to attach to the top of the stand, and coating it, and making the little card to go in the signholder, and screw down the signholder . . . never ends . . .
