As a chef and collector of high end kitchen cutlery, I started a side business with my 'forge making things like magnetic knife racks, which i have posted previously, and other kitchen gear. I also have taken on some awesome projects of making knife covers aka Saya, for some of my fellow knife enthusiasts(nothing for myself yet, of course!) . The sides(faces) are maple, with basswood frame between(softer wood for touching the blade edge of the knife). The insides are lined with felt, and the construction is completed with wood glue and dowels. The straps are inlaid via engrave and are cork fabric. Everything is cut on the glowforge, and then Hand sanded/finished. Just working on how I want the details/style/feel/quality to exemplify my brand.
Thanks for looking!
