Olivewood Burl Shibata Kashima by Bensbites.

Post by Robstreperous » Fri Dec 29, 2017 8:24 pm

Just got my Kashima back from Ben. Olivewood Burl (Greenberg Woods) with cocobolo ferrule and quilted maple spacers. Quilted maple saya with a live edge olivewood pin.

Ben also did some round olivewood pins, cocobolo pins, and quilted maple pins. Seems he had a customer who ... was either inspired with tons of creativity or just couldn't make up his darn mind. *wink*

I had a customer who was great to work with! We were able to volley ideas off each other and the final product was better for the time and effort put into it.

Great job capturing the curls in the saya.

This turned out beautiful, well done!
