    A little useful tip.
    After my last post I couldn't take it , had to fiddle with that piece of maple to catch that spalt better, rather than cut it in half. I had a scale pattern cut from 1/8 masonite, which is fine, but decided to cut one from 1/4" lexan for better set up. Takes five minutes and works very well for laying out the scales on figured or burly wood when you can see through the pattern. I have these cut for most of the patterns I use for my knives.

    Here is the book matched set now, and the flip side view, that spalt should creep out more with shaping. A much nicer finished product but a bit more for the bin. One nice set instead of two so so sets ...

    Ill stick these together with double sided tape and cut on the band saw.

    Just a word of caution. I would hate to see something...don't say it, Rog. Those "splats" in the maple have been caused by
    damage or disease. If you have another piece you are willing to sacrifice, plane it as thin as you would the finished scales.
    Give that a flex test to make sure those "splats" are good and tight.

    Truly inspiring work! Thank you for keeping us in the know!

    You are welcome.
    I really enjoy these WIP type threads so figured I'd post some pics as I made these. Got a little more done, mocked up one of the them and all looks good so far. A little fine tuning in the morning.

    No worries Panama60,
    I had a 2x12" x 4' hunk of that curly maple that I have processed into scales and handle blocks. Real nice stuff, and it is also stabilized with cactus juice. That spalt running through this piece is purely cosmetic, still very solid. Definitely great advice tho, I gave it the bend and snap test , at 1/16" its still very strong.

    Hello all,
    Just received a new 4" contact wheel for the grinder. Time to get back to work... Hopefully I will get some work done and a few updated pics tomorrow.
