New Handle

If ya can't find what ya want you just do it yourself.  Time to put the finishing touches on it.
The problem with a problem is that you don't know it's a problem until it's a problem.

    I have an old antique worn sledgehammer handle I'd like to make a handle out of.  

    Is that spalted maple on yours?

    It's some old pecky sinker cypress from the Atchafalaya Basin.  Old sledge handle, that's cool.

    I just got the workstation today for my Shaper Origin router.  Plan on doing an egg handle as a first project....

    I don't have the skills to make it into a handle, but I would happily pay someone who did this part time to do so.  If that is you, please let me know.  If not, understood.

    Very nice!  I like the two-tier system you have.  Looks like stainless.  I have one like it but regular steel, wish it was stainless.  Where did you buy your two-tier grids?

    Super COOL! Just don’t have too many adult beverages before using, unless you purchased the optional rotational horn handle feature!

    Thanks.  Its steel not stainless.  Just well oiled after each use.  The top has the duck head from the handle, and towels etc, the bottom is the bull head from the handle.  Had then made.  I can dig up the info.  Will make whatever you want.  Thank you also
