Kydex 1.1

OK OK I give in!
This Kydex malarkey isn't as easy as it first appeared, when I had the fit I wanted between to two edges the hold was so tight I needed two hands to unsheathe the knife. So rivets it is. The flaring tool I've got isn't a very good fit for the sexy black rivets the Kydex store sells so I've used a pair in soft aluminum that I found in the shed.

Now if I could only find the big hinges I could make a start on the wood burning stove for TNM's boat.

Thanks for reading
PS CORRECTION - I'm going to a kids party in the park.

It's a metal boat, a narrow boat or 'floating corridor'
they all have them.

The bit that maybe a little more challenging is I want to build him an underfloor heating system run off the stove - seems really simple to me, so either I'm a genius or I'm missing something!
