Knitting Needles Galore
Dave has been busy. For someone who doesn't knit, he sure makes beautiful needles. These he made of Red Mahogany, Canary, Wenge, Cocobolo wood. The shafts are Birch and he spends a long time sanding them with 5 different sandpapers for an ultra smooth finish before sealing them. They feel so good on the finger tips, it sure beats aluminum.
