    Unhappy It was fun while it lasted...

    All of about 30 seconds after I put in the splines. Oh well, it really looked nice, bloodwood head and a hickory handle.

    I think I'll actually let the glue dry over night next time, lesson learned. Good thing I hadnt glued the leather on the face.

    Dang! Hate it when that happens.

    Any chance of salvaging it? Maybe slicing along the split and re-gluing?

    looks like it was a glue line that let loose so it should be repairable the splines may be a problem though..

    I'm just going to hang it up on the wall for a reminder not to get in a hurry next time.

    We all need one of those wall decorations. Good attitude. Fall back, regroup, forward.

    Run some hardwood dowels of a contrasting color through it. Put in a pattern, like your initials, and they will be both decorative and save yer bonker.
