After a few discussions about 'odd' handle materials, I was reminded of something I've been meaning to try - making my own micarta out of some dog hair! (All naturally shed - she doesn't have a bald patch!)
I didn't have a lot of hair to play with so hopefully it's enough to make a spacer. When it was full of resin, it got even smaller!
I had a lot of resin left over, which I hadn't really thought about beforehand so I decided to throw some string in it.
I've no idea how this'll work. I've only played at this once before, a couple of years back.
