  45. LOVE THIS!!!!
  46. threaded, treaded...u know what I mean right?
  47. fhr, well because one of them is a bit loose, and it is not threaded.....it could be threaded a little further on down though. Really just a guess.
  48. is it cherry? I need to learn my woods.
  49. Just added a close up of the pocket... I think it is hand worked...no?
  50. fhr, I was saying the wood is maple, but half of the time I am guessing...as you know by now.
