The profile of the handle was turned next. I wish I'd left it a little thicker, I may end up turning another one leaving a little more meat but I hesitate because of the end grain threads.
Last the nubs were sanded off of both ends of the head and the butt end of the handle before a coat of oil was wiped on. I plan to turn a sounding block out of the same wood but that's a project for another day.
