    Hey, not too shabby. Sometimes it doesn't take to much effort. Nice work.

    That must be a good pocket knife. That's not bad at all. It's always good to have something that you have worked on yourself.

    I'm impressed. It wood (pun intended) take skill and patience to turn out something that good.

    Great job! Nice looking wood, what is it? What did you use as the finish? I did a couple from wood by hand without a lathe last year, turned out nice and I still use them but made me want a lathe even worse than before
