I'm not a big fan of scrimshaw work, and I can't afford ivory. Possibably stag or walnut.

there arre many great types of woods. or, perhaps elk antler, buffalo horn, or even boar tusk. as for woods, theres various figured maple, macasar [spelling] ebony would be distinct, coco bolo, but walnut is a classic for a reason, and a darn good one at that. if i get an saa clone i might go with elk antler, polished smppth, would be like ivory.

Very nicely done Bob. It looks much better.

There is a good explanation for that. I got some old wood 1 x 12s, that I think are western red cedar. I've made auxilliary tables for my drill press and work tables. For my drill press I made a larger drilling table and a couple of sanding tables. These are stored, when not in use, in a rack so I labeled them for quick ID when using them.

Looking great, Bob. I'm falling fast for the single actions.

You really could get some great woods for that bad boy. Maybe a little maple burl.

I just thought about holly, youd want to put a protective finish on it.
