I've admired your knives for a few years now dozer, and love your throw back aging techniques. You have an artist mind and eye.

BTW I've dabbled a bit on the edged side of things in the past. Behind the above bench photo is a portion of my workshop.

Keep up your fine work sir!

From this thread, not really arts & crafts, but will be disassembling the rear end of the Scout to replace the swingarm.

We have a few of those half-circle windows in our house & custom 'blind' panels are pricey.

Had a fair bit of 'scrap' wood around the house, so decided to DIY it.

My original idea, was to build a filler panel that would slide into the pocket, then my wife decided she wanted 'shutters'.

A trip to HD, borrowed my F-I-L's air stapler & a few hours of my time.

Not 100% happy with a few parts, but overall I think they'll work. And, if not, I only have about $20 (hinges, staples, paint) in it.

This is the back side & they'll be closed the majority of the time.
Learned a few things & will probably do a better job on the next set.


And, a shot of what the front will be



Got these hung tonight. No more wedging a pillow in the window.
Turned out better than I expected.

I do wish the hinges allowed them to open a bit further. But, they'll be closed 99% of the time.
