Out of the scales I bought this was my favorite the grain is very nice and easy to work with. I had no problems with cutting since all I have to cut with is a coping saw it worked great

Nice Wood but not an easy task
I was given a wine bottle opener for Christmas and my wife did not realize that you had to make and attach your own handle scales. These are good value but they are just two pieces of wood. I would have happily paid three times as much for a set that were already cut to fit the handle, but I did go about cutting them to fit. The scales are not the right size in any dimension, so you have to cut the length, width and depth and it is difficult to cut the depth accurately when you only need an eighth of an inch or so. The final result is ok but the quality of the opener itself far outshines my amateurish handle making skills. Good fun but really something for a skilled woodworker not an amateur like myself.

I'm making my frat knife and was curious as to how I'm supposed to secure the handle pieces to the knife?
Aaron D on Nov 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 2 part epoxy is the way to go. use 30 minute if you are new to the craft, so you have plenty of time for alignment and pin insertion
