Kwila Wood Puukko Sheath Update 2...

Yet another update.
I can't seem to keep my anxious little paws off of this thing.
Tonight I sealed the deal with some Howard Feed-N-Wax Wood Preserver with Beeswax and Orange Oil. Then I made a nice antler bead to replace the figure-eight knot on the belt thong.
A pic of the finish...

Melikes it. Melikes it a lot!:D

MMMMMMM, lookin' REAL good. I like. Now, where is Kwila wood grown? (I know- I can google it, but more fun gettin' a straight answer.)
Yup- lookin good. Nice fun project for a winter day or two.
Maybe some turpentine or ethanol type cleaner will get the oil off the leather? Be sure to try on scrap leather first.

Hi Shywolf!
Kwila Wood is a tropical wood grown in SE Asia and the South Pacific.
We brought a bunch of lumber back with us when we came home from the mission field.
It was a lot of fun to make.
By no means can I claim that I made this "all by myself."
I had a ton of help from my buddy Al.
