    Might need to sharpen them multiple times for one turning?
    That may be true as some woods such as teak may seem easy to turn and machine but do to High silica content dull tools.
    A sharp tool will cut a near perfect finish and not Gouge the wood as above.

    Thanks!

    I noticed today that it was getting to be time to sharpen my tools, it was a challenge to rough the purpleheart to shape. The gouges are shallow enough to be sanded out, but I definitely need to get the grinder back out.

    They look very nice,but heres a tip I learned the hard way a long time ago,Knots are hand made,they can Vary in size (sometimes alot)
    With my handles I fit ea,Knot to the handle,sometimes the size diff is substantial.
    Will not make a handle without having the knot in hand

    You have some vastly different sizes there too. They sure look nice. Hope the knots go in well.
    Good judgment comes from experience, and experience....well that comes from poor judgment.

    I wasn't sure about the variability in knot size so I did make the handles so the holes for the knots can be adjusted to fit. I should hopefully be ok.
