Yes, given some practice, and the right tools, I could make some nice handles. Keeping the tools secure is a whole other worry.
Both look great! I especially like Walnut. It's cool to see you got together with a friend and made some Mule handles. Well done.007 Agent Zzero wrote: ↑Fri May 21, 2021 9:16 pm0B61723A-2854-403D-908A-6913BADA4FC2.jpeg
CK that thread was quite the education. Thank you! A buddy of mine is a woodworker and we got S45VN mules together to do a handle project. Here is a bit of walnut with the new mule. My old PSF27 mule is wearing some sapelle.
Oh, maybe I see the small tearout, last pin left side? Tearout is a pain, can't be completely avoided, but tricks I have used to limit tearout include:FullScaler wrote: ↑Thu May 27, 2021 12:36 amThanks, the wood is looking better every day as I keep working the boiled linseed oil into it.
They are brass pins. I was able to get a nice tight fit in the wood but did have a tiny bit of tearout on a couple of them.
Working on some real tight birds eye maple on next and hope to have time this weekend to finish it up.
