Truly inspirational. Can't wait to see the finished products. Stuff like this keeps me motivated.
Nice Cinnamon Burl
well thats the one I voted for cinnamon burl, now thats a nice wood, I dont have alot of experience making scales but I love to see the patterns, thats why I like Laburnum...a definate pattern to it, plus I like have sides that dont exacly match ,pattern and grain , to me the way I like it if its for me then I go with individuality.
Refering to a post that Bill replied to, he mentioned that he sees a personality in a razor and matches it to scales of different woods, that I can appreciate and aggree with.
I have a few sets I will be showing soon but I do love Joe and Bills work...one day...hmmm
So there you have it I voted for the cinammon Burl cos its lovely...
The good news is that the blades are back. The bad news is that I can't work on the razor until my shed is done. The shed is about 80% complete. Seeing how only members are going to be able to buy tickets, I just know all y'all are recruiting membership at the other sites so they have a chance to buy some as well...
Hmm... wonder how many of :rofl I'll be seeing with that comment.
hmmmm that reminds me Bill, I have to stop telling people where you have been hanging out these days until after Thanksgiving. I guess I can still recommend your work and your website. Unless of course you have any links to the drawing on there?
Hey do entries from your home state (no not Cali) get special treatment? And no I don't mean disqualification.
Actually, I haven't told anyone but the Shave Den. I wasn't looking for attention. Just wanted to do something for this crew. I see no one else has posted on the other sites either, though... that would cut the chances of winning, huh? Where's the love? No links from my site yet. Y'all think I should do that?
As far as Massachusetts... you guys keep voting in Kennedy... and you want special treatment?
Can I come help you on your shed, I used to build power plants for a living, a shed will be easy.
Oh sure, Jim... wait until I get to this point to offer. :signs062
I used to do shut downs in WY, UT and CO....
Well, I started working on a set of scales for the Shave Den razor. They are coming along ok. Don't have pics yet... bummer.
Does this mean the shed is done?
Sooo, inquiring minds want to know....What was the material chosen for the scales? Can't wait to see them :drool
For the most part. The rest is painting. I can fit in a few razors now before I have to start on the furniture my wife says is necessary for me to get a move on.
Would that ruin the surprise factor? Should I wait for the winner to post pics? This will be done in a week, or less, by the way.
Oh, the scales are pretty much done. Unless I change my mind and go with another set.
Last shutdown I worked on was as a welder...in Jamica
My my... somebody's gonna like this razor. I thought about keeping this one for myself. Um ah umm mmm mmm! I will try to take a couple of pics tomorrow to show the progress. Of course, all this is for naught if the heat treat didn't come out right. Won't know that until the very last thing.
Here we go...
I had to take pics in my workshop, so they aren't very good.
I made the scales a little different...
Here's the match-up
That razor is looking mighty fine. I guess I will have to get used to people asking me "Hey, who is Bill Ellis, and why are you shaving with his razor?" when I win it..
It looks Fantastic Bill! I really like the pin detail too drool
What is the grind of the blade? and what size is it?
