    I just got done making the Berry Picker, as a present for a neighbor who had helped me out with another project. This was a very simple project, that looks great, and seems very sturdy. I hope it works well.

    Sarge or Rick, this should be made a sticky so it's easy to find for those that are into "Making Stuff".

    Thank you, I hope the members old and new take some private time and make some of these projects. I've been making different ones for Christmas presents. Any of them make great personal gifts.

    Could you be a little more specific on what you're doing and how you're doing it? What type of knife? That sort of thing. Your question is really general, if you want a specific answer, you'll need to ask a specific question. But there are quite a few members that make knives and have all the info you'll need.
