    These have been sitting far to long. Let's see if we can make them devilish.

    Thanks for your patience @blackmetal1181

    Hardware should be here early next week. So much time has elapsed that everyone probably forgot about these. But there was talk of a possibly making a forum scalpel. These being prototypes. So keep an eye on this and let me know what you guys think. I'm open to any and all suggestions.

    Once the hardware gets here I'll start cutting and drilling.

    Always something. Long over due to be swapped out anyway. Luckily remembered I had an extra blade. Took a bit to find it, but was rocking and rolling again.

    Got the scales roughly cut out. Took longer to figure out which part of the wood scales I wanted to use. The pattern isn't very deep on one scale. I'll have to thin them down from the back side. The fat carbon is cool but stinky. Should be gluing these up tomorrow.

    Jason gave me permission to cut out a couple more blanks. I'll see if I can have a couple more going at the same time. If there is something that will make them more appealing to you guys, nows the time to speak up.

    Well shit. Turns out, the awesome stabilized/dyed curly maple scales are pretty much a one off. I will not be able to get them again. Dont fall in love with them. I'll see what I can find.
