During the field portion of my masters of forestry I helped @rhibb98 and @dawsonbilski make a couple of knives with Birdseye and curly maple handles from the Michigan Tech Ford forest.

It's going to be hard to do this wood justice. You don't often come across maple with this kind of figure. The curly hard maple is AMAZING!
I took a little bit relaxation time and made a sheath for the paracord handle blacksmiths knife I made a while back. This is the first sheath I've made in quite a while and it took me a bit to get back in the swing of things.

I felt very out of practice making this, but I'm relatively happy with how it came out. The paracord handle was a lot of fun to figure out.

I wrote a review of this pack from @opossumpouchsoftgoods based on my experience camping with it out on the keweenaw. If you have any interest, check it out at: https://bushcraftusa.com/forum/threads/opossum-pouch-soft-goods-pack-review.255818/

Camping at Fish Cove last night was an incredible experience, made immeasurably better by the bug net on my hammock.

Just dinkin around. This style of knife is a fun tune-up project.

This took me a little too long to get set up, but the raffle for the blacksmith knife giveaway is finally here. Thank you all for participating and being patient. Congratulations @jhardcastle18 on winning the knife. Please send me a message with your shipping details.
Sidenote: it's really hard to take a video while carving anything
First time this has happened in a while. It feels good to be back!

If you like to mountain bike, and haven't made a trip up to Copper Harbor, you're missing out. This picture is taken at the current end of the Keweenaw Point trail, which is at the most northern point of Michigan. The trail is a 26mi out and back starting from the town if cooler harbor.
