This week I've been experimenting using Kydex as a custom shaped sanding block. Fun stuff!

It makes good sheaths for knifes and chisels too. This was my first one.

That’s pretty neat. Are those rivets holding the sheath together?

Yes, rivets. I also have some screw type fasteners. The cool thing was that the rivet setter had the same size shaft as my fret press caul so it fits nicely into the arbor.
