I did a thing! Tested out some ideas with black walnut and a scrap of aluminum. The hole didn’t square well by hand (drill press next time), and honestly I rushed this. I hadn’t even thought about finishing it tonight but I couldn’t leave well enough alone.
My SOG Slim XL for scale.
know what to do the the rest of them now though which is a plus and this will give me the first platform to test out some of my leather-working skills (newly founded). I am sure it will be an abysmal failure.
