In the World of the High Tech Redneck, the Graybeard is the old guy who earned his gray by making all the mistakes, and tries to keep the young 'uns from repeating them. Silicon Graybeard is my term for an old hardware engineer; a circuit designer. The focus of this blog is on doing things, from radio to home machine shops and making all kinds of things, along with comments from a retired radio engineer running from tech or science news to economics; from firearms to the world at large.

New Little Sunday Afternoon Project
My weekend woodworking project. Damascus steel with amboyna burl scales on the handles, brass rivet pins. 12 1/2 inches long. Wicked sharp. I didn't make the steel; the blade was my Christmas gift from the lovely Mrs. Graybeard. All I did was the woodworking. Not exactly New Yankee Workshop stuff...
