The idea came from Woodsmith Magazine Oct/Nov 2009 issue. I made this for my father for Christmas from the wood out of the 100+ year old cherry and walnut trees off the home farm that we cut down 2 years ago due to them becoming structurally unsafe. I handcoped the walnut and maple ribbon handle because a bandsaw is still on my want list. Then I sanded it to fit with the spindle sander. I cut the miters on the table saw,although next time I think I will use a 45 chamfer bit on the router table. End result: it was a gift that meant a lot to my father
"I live in NJ, and wish there was a physical store near where I live. My experience with rockler.com is second to none. Not only are your products first rate, but customer service/product support is exceptional. I've called several times, and never received someone on the other end of the phone who was anything but extremely helpful, patient, and friendly. The biggest compliment I can give is that I TRUST Rockler for all my woodworking needs. The only other store I can say that about is LL Bean. My wood working friends in western NJ love Rockler. Keep on keepin' on - and get a store here in Jersey!!" -
