I would guess the pro knife makers are aware of the toxicity of some South American and African woods but the amateurs may not be familiar with the problems.  Check out this site: http://www.shopsmithacademy.com/Tips_Archives/TP124_Toxic_Woods_files/TP124_Images/TOXIC%20WOODS%20CHART.pdf

I have experienced serious skin rash due to dust from some rosewoods and cocobolo.  This fact occurred to me AFTER I sanded up two ebony scales.  So far, so good.

I just returned from NCS at Bartle scout reservation in Missouri.
COPE is dope.
Lots of fun, good people.

What and where did you get that one creek?  I have yet to come across one and can't bring myself to spend the dough on ebay for one.  Looks nice though.  I've always wanted to try one out.  Are you going to make a handle for it?

Tailgaters are bad.  I dislike slow drivers too.

A really good book on the people and 'heart-of-the-dust-bowl' areas in the panhandles of Texas & Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and southeastern Colorado is entitled THE WORST HARD TIME by Timothy Egan.  If you'd like to read what it was like for the people that stayed in it for the duration, rather than hitting Route 66 for picking jobs in California.  It made THE GRAPES OF WRATH look like a family vacation by comparison. :-\

Great book, really put a face on what depression and the dust bowl years were like.

I have plenty of 1/8" brass rod but no 1/16" so I went to a local welding supply.  He said he sold by the pound.  I guess the dissapointment showed and he said "what do you need, just one 3 footer? ". I said yes and he said "take it and come back when you want to buy more."  Nice guy.  He might need a free squirrel cooker.

Yeah...."understand" is the problem, here.  Just goes to show you what a poor wordsmith I am....I am pretty good at tying knots, though. :popcorn:

Would what? Understand?  Yeah, what we have here is a failure to communicate.

I didn't think you would, but I'll try later.......maybe.
