WIP Wednesday - 5/14/2014

If you are thinking this post is going to be about knitting, you are going to be disappointed.  

Since we at Chez Merry Karma are currently undergoing The World's Longest Move Ever, the whole project is a work-in-progress.  It will continue to be a WIP for the foreseeable future...

Yesterday, I unpacked the knives I brought over from the former house.  I've had these knives for a long time, and the wooden handles looked sad.  I remembered a product called Wood Beams that I purchased from Goodies Unlimited at DFW Fiber Fest and I thought I would give it a try.

Here are the knives before: (I had already applied the product on the bread knife in the lower left of the picture.)


Notice the sharpener - it looks better than the knives because it doesn't get washed as often as they do.  I do wash my good knives by hand - but this method is just as dehydrating to the wooden handles as the dishwasher would be...it just takes longer.  

I wasn't expecting the handles to return to their original color, but they do look nicer:


Back to the grind.  I hope to get back to knitting soon...

MK out.

The handles and knives do look better! We've had our set forever! They get sharpened once in a blue moon...
