Intro: Making Bushcraft Knife Handle Liners
How I made DIY knife liners
Step 1: Cutting A4 Card for Liners
Two A4 will make enough for 4 knife, I cut the cards in half so it would be easier when clamping up
Step 2: Prepping the Wet Out Board
I covered the board in self adhesive vinyl to stop the resin adhering to the board, i had some so I used it but food wrap would be just has good
Step 3: Wetting the Paper With Resin
I used a clear fibreglass resin to laminate the card together in coloured layer ( 4 to a layer ) and separated the layers with thin plastic i used food bags but in insight food wrap would have been better.
when all the layer where down i place a board on top and clamped it down and let it overnight to set
Step 4: Attaching the Liners to the Scales
I used 2 hour epoxy resin to glue the liners to the oak scales and let them set overnight.
for an in-depth look at the process please view video
Step 5: Video
I separated the scale ready for handle assembly.
