Small project time… here is a pair of mini-magnifiers… the wood is a laminated product called Dymalux, in Cranberry. It polishes up very nicely, like an acrylic, but behaves more like a very even-grained wood when turning. I’ll be trying more of this. It’s similar to Spectraply, but a little denser, I think.
Here are a couple of couples of seam rippers. A couple in walnut and a couple in padauk.
These are double-ended seam rippers, for those who sew and are not perfect. There is a large and a small blade, and each can be turned around to store the blade inside the tube.
