It has been raining a lot here in south Louisiana the past few weeks, and my egg doesn't have any shelter as of yet. That doesn't have to slow me down any longer:

Well it really didn't slow me down before either, I just thought this looked cool.

    That is an epic handle. Not to hijack this thread (rain hat) please share details.

    I made it with a couple of pieces of scrap Birch plywood glued together and carved with a Dremel Moto tool to kind of fit my left hand. I gave it about 5 coats of Poly and mounted it to the egg metal handle from the back with a couple of long thin round headed screws. I once made a plywood slingshot with a custom grip and liked the way the plywood layers brought out the shape.

    Next project; a full size reproduction of Michelangelo'David done in laminate plywood. :woohoo:
