Wooden Knife Progress

Progress of the knife. Simple piece of pinewood cut to length, then design drawn on. Slotted out the handle and concaves. Then I sanded everything down to get a smoother design. Then I started sanding down the bevels of the knife and rounding the handle. With varying pieces of sandpaper I then sanded it smooth, used filler to fill up the cracks and get it smoother. Then I stained it with very potent, but thinned-down paint. After that, I coated it in various layers of button varnish to get the shining effect. Very proud of this project.
