Wood Sheaths

This question comes up on occasion about making sheaths out of wood. I do not have any step by step photos but essentially
1) Two slabs of wood remove enough wood the blade is a snug fit and glue together.
or
2) two slabs of wood with a layer or three of spacer material shaped to the knife profile and all glued together.

Belt loop attachments can be done in any variety of ways, let your imagination run wild.

Sheath has a recess carved for the leather and a leather loop attached to the back like a conventional leather sheath. Forming and sewing wrap around portion done while wet so it shrinks tight.
