No not mosaic pins.

Here's a handle I put on a Brisa blank that way--with two corby bolts to hold things together around the mosaic pin.
Did you have the wood stabilized first? I got the impression that it was fairly important to do.FullScaler wrote: ↑Wed May 19, 2021 12:10 amI have been cleaning out my garage getting ready to move and dug up some very nice birds eye maple that I forgot I had. As soon as I saw it I thought of this thread and it wasn't long before I stopped cleaning the garage and started making some sawdust.
I was able to get them roughed out, drilled for pins, and epoxied before it got too late. I also roughed out some ironwood scales for another Mule so I was able to get two blades glued up tonight.
I used brass pins on both and am interested to see the contrast between the pins on the dark wood and the light maple. The corbies in the pics with the ironwood were just for holding the scales in place while I roughed them out a bit
