Dovetail marking knives complete

This small batch is now complete. Rather than use the buffing wheel to finish I used three coats of melamine laquer which was rubbed out with micromesh to 3,600 grit. After applying wax this left a lusterous and flawless finish with good clarity. It took longer but was worth it.

Each knife comes boxed with a full set of instructions for sharpening etc.

Here are some in Brazilian Tulipwood a very hard and pretty timber with salmon pink stripes running through the cream wood.
