    Here are a few pictures of my shop when I first converted the garage into my work space. Lots of changes since then, and it`s not so clean anymore.

    One of the biggest Gatherings at the shop, everyone got to design their own Tin Knife, and I made them. I think only two of these guys are still around here,

    And the Scanduckie was born!
    An assumption on my part, but it looks like the beak facing Andy's left.

    It's nice to see where the magic begins.
    I'd show pics of my garage but I don't have one.:( ;)

    Mykel nailed it! Scanduckie was born on that day.

    John - I count three - Frontiertom, JDS and myself.

    Here are links to past gatherings - enough to keep you busy through a blizzard...

    The only way it could be done is green handles with yellow liners. I would have to see if I have a pattern.

    I keep thinking that a scaled up version of the Scanduckie would be cool, maybe about 6” - 6 1/2” overall.
    (currently it’s 4”) Put some handles on it and call it the Scanduckie +

    I am willing to send in the 'duckie for evaluation - and would likely be in for a scaled up version.

    I had thought about one with green and tan micarta cut and glued in such a way as to look like somewhat of a mallard.

    Of course I am the bozo that came up with the design in the first place so you should not be listening to me....

    I think I see three of these guys that are still around! Good to see everyone else has noticed the three of us! Mqqn is always on the ball! That was a really good "Gathering", I had a really great time! I was glad to be able to get Ted there with me! I can't talk them into getting on a ✈ to come and visit us down here! I can't really blame them, cause I don't like to fly anymore either! Sure wish we could visit with him and his wife again! I might have to talk to Yvonne, and maybe we will have to get on the plane and go visit them! Wouldn't mind getting into the woods again! Maybe after Yvonne gets back from Kenosha! Later guys!
