Knife-Making » Ready To Glue

One side of the handle block is ready to go. The other side is ready to be glued, two pieces of wood will be glued together and glued to the existing block.

Prior to gluing, it is a good idea to drill a small pilot-hole now, for the positions where you intend to secure the blade with pins, bolts, etc. These pilot-hole(s) also help as a guide in later steps.
