Last Minute Set Back

On Saturday right before the next step, The walnut handle cracked from the stress of the cutler's rivet.  No matter how careful, no matter how much planning....things like this can happen.  There is not time for deliberation to discover whether the wood wasn't kiln dried, whether I used to thin of scales....I just need to try it again and try to get it done in time for the Santa express!
Thankfully, I have back up Walnut that is ready to go!  This is an opportunity to try something else, and end up with a better product.
