coffee lovers knifescales
« on: March 18, 2017, 07:26:07 AM »
since many of us love our morning cup of joe.
i've been inspired to do a sheet of espresso de micarta oh yeah.
imagine sitting at the camp fire it's morning cool out
and you're starting the fire with your espresso bush knife,
ah life is goood. i'll use the bondo resin on this cause the resin
whencured has a amber color to it. adding to the color of the coffee beans.

I have seen macarta from coffee sacks so this would be the next logical step. Go for it.
I would like to see some of the macarta you have made.
What a great day to be outside.
