I finished making (2) sets of handles/knobs for the bowsaw (along with the toggles) I'm making for my buddy and wanted to get some feedback on them from y'all.
I turned one set from Cherry and the other from Walnut. I know my buddy likes both. However, just be be different I went and Ebonized the walnut using a mix of steel wool and vinegar. The finish on all items is multiple layers of garnet shellac and a coat of wax.
I think the ebonized walnut will look awesome because of the contrast. But I know that once the cherry ages it will also provide a nice contrast. I can't really ask my friend without spoiling the surprise. So some input would be appreciated.
I'm supposed to bring this bowsaw with me when I go over to his house on Saturday. Decisions, decisions, decisions!
