    The director of the Carlsbad NM museum asked If he could display some of my knives. This is the result.

    Thanks, everyone. The roadrunner is made by using rubber cement to glue a pattern to the wood. Then I use a scroll saw to cut out the pattern. I fill the cut out portion with turquoise inlace. It can be purchased from wood supply places.
    I hope this display will help educate the public about hand made knives.
    I think the museum did a remarkable job with their displays.
