Oh, that looks like a nice project.Are you planning to include the toothpick and tweezers?
Looking good if that's an inlay on the old scales remember to save it before you bin them It's waterfall time (Image removed from quote.)
Took the Workchamp along on the dog walk this morning.
That's a great tip Borg Those are very nice wooden scales

The metal inlay shield in the red scales, you can remove those quite easily and if you like you can recess and glue it into your new wood scales, i like the Vic shield so i did it to my wooden ones, like this..But even if you don't want to use them for that they are still worth keeping for other future projects Are you aware you can do that job without destroying the old scales? just carefully remove them and photocopy them, use the photocopy as a template and glue it onto the wood, gives you correct size and also exactly where to drill, make sure you photocopy the inside though
Great idea, Borg!Great mountain panorama, BCNZ!
