    I have agreed to do a trade with Robert, the owner of <a href="http://www.rockstonedleather.com/" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Rockstoneleather</a>.<br><br>He will make me a custom watch (I can't find good commercial ones as my wrist is too thick, almost 10" diameter). <br>Now the guy loves gothic designs, obviously. So I came up with a Phoenix variation, slightly "Van Helsing'ed".<br><br>I just wanted to make a quick and dirty test frame, used some plywood and some leftover olive wood parts as scales. Inked it black, then added some bronze "coffin" nails I had lying around. <br><br><div style="margin:auto;text-align:center;width:100%">

    <br><br>It came out really good! I am blown away about how comfortable the frame is. <br><br>Have ordered 2000 year old moor oak for the one I am going to make for Robert... it will be even nicer than this one.

    you know what would be awesome? (because the side looks like it) a foldable pocket knife (like a swiss army knife) as a base (handle) for a slingshot.

    Made a nice bandset for the Demon Hunter tonite, from three layers of TB Black per side. <br><br>Looks great, feels great, and probably shoots great - no time to test, in spite of the warm weather the sun goes down early already. No more shooting after 7 PM.<br><br><div style="margin:auto;text-align:center;width:100%"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-sVnN9HxYnzQ/ToIZXth4EEI/AAAAAAAAA7s/wA7Nl5qP0ok/s1600/DemonBand.JPG" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-sVnN9HxYnzQ/ToIZXth4EEI/AAAAAAAAA7s/wA7Nl5qP0ok/s320/DemonBand.JPG" border="0" alt=""></a></div>

    Very nice look, and probably strong if you can use 3 layers TB on it.
