I reworked how I do the pommel plate construction.
This one's kinda rough looking because I was trying to get everything figured out.
The other way was plenty strong but this new way is stronger still and maybe (not sure yet) a little easier to keep everything lined up. This is how Marble's used to make their hidden tang pommels attach.
Yesterday the batch looked like this
It looks like this tonight
Hopefully I'll be done with all the handle work by early next week and then move on to sheaths.
Thanks for taking a look,
