Thread: Snazzy red oak gouge handle

  1. #1

    Snazzy red oak gouge handle

    I found this piece of red oak crotch in my firewood pile. Once I started turning it I couldn't believe what was inside!

    After watching Alan Lacer's "Son of Skew" DVD I tried his method of making the handle - which, incidentally, is exactly the same as Stu's method. I think I'm sticking with my old method next time.

    Wow, that is a nice handle, but think of the wonderful boxes you could have made

    You should look at your firewood pile more often!

    I did think of it, and I actually stopped cutting twice, trying to decide if I should abort the mission and find something plainer for the handle.

    Naaaahhh

    Thanks for the kind words, all. I can't wait to try it out!
