I .. like you .. don't do it for the money.

That is my reward for doing the projects ... some of which I've posted here.

Pottering with another TL 29 refurbishment project. This time going with bone (Bovine) for the handle scales... a first for me...

In the bottom of this pic an experiment with coloring the bone with Condy's Crystals
