Handle replacement still going strong

Carved a handle about 4 years ago for my large egg and it's still a good grip, I did not think it would hold up this long. Must be the beef grease keeping it waterproof? It's gotten a nice lump dust patina.
When your an egghead, custom-made egg stuff is cool.
Lawnranger, a well respected egghead, makes handles for eggs and BBQ tools if you would like a custom grip. He does really nice custom wood work and he will brand your forum handle/name into the wood. Check it out.

    you're right - oak doesn't normally hold up that well in the elements. I see you have also replaced your wings with solid boards too so your egg must be getting a lot of TLC!

    BTW anybody else notice that the Lawn Ranger has sort of been MIA for a while? Hope he's OK...

    That's really nice Clay. I have 2 handles from LR and I just ordered one for my mini.
