I use wood mostly but I'm working on starting to use antlers and bone. I'm also wanting to do some metal scales and polymer clay. I would love to do some copper too.

In funiture , anything is possible. Any material,plastics,polymeres,metal,wood,just about anything you can think of.
That was our logo"If you can imagine it we can produce it."

If I can ever help you in any way,you PM me.YOU ARE A MASTER CRAFTSMAN.I love beautiful things and I love your work.
Copper,you would think soft and easy,I hate it. If you take a three foot bar,heat one end of it,the other end will soon catch up,it distorts,changes diamention under stress and heat.There are worse metals to work with ,stainless,hate it to.
Knowledge is to be passed on.-Anything !

Got my knife from Griffin today. It is awesome. Seemed a lot bigger in the photos, but I was pleasantly surprised to find it wasn't huge after all.

Great craftsmanship, Griffin...I know that mat'l was hard to work with, but you pulled it off well. I'll post some pics when the leather is finished.

griffin as usual the end product is going to be nice. the shape and work so far look amazing. i wouldn't mind some more information on the forge. looks interesting and something i have been thinking about for a few years now.

I think this will make a good set of scales for the new Bowie I'm doing.

A little sanding and shaping then some oil and buffing and they will look great I hope.

I'm gonna fit the handles and then remove them to do some file work like the one I did for my other buddy. I hope this one comes out as nice.

That wood's going to look good on that knife. Can't wait to see it.

Seems like a good place to ask since y'all seem to know what you're doing. I just made a set of scales for an old bayonet, how do I attach them?
Sorry if I jacked your thread.
