Way to go! I love miniature tools.
 So Is the jointer snakewood?
 I like that saw tote. Looks like ebony.

Nice work, if I may ask what do you do if you have left overs of materials like this? I like to collect miniatures of all types. Some of mine are hand made and some are manufactured.

Yeah fork over the cutlery Buddy!! Several of us make or at least have made some knives.  You got people who want to see your stuff, for sure!! Dish it up!!!
 Of course if you got any other minis I want to see that too!
 In fact, knives and miniature tools? If you also sing and play the guitar we could be related, for sure. Where you from??? heehehehe
