Day 314: Getting a handle on things
I've had a piece of Lignum Vitae for a little while and it was the perfect size for this. The ferrule is more brass pipe, it's actually the threaded end I cut off of the pipe coupler I used for the center band on my big pen. The bit was simply press fit into the 7mm hole I drilled in the end. The finish is a wiped on coat of Danish Oil and then quickly buffed with white diamond.
Lastly I wanted to be able to tell the difference between the 2 red handles so I chucked one up and turned the end of the handle so it's bare aluminium.
Additionally I got an email today from the club up in Prescott. I've demonstrated for them the past 2 years and they want me to demo for them again next year. I'll have to come up with a new topic. Any ideas?
