    Thanks very much for the more than kind words. Very encouraging: D you all know how to make a newbie turner feel pretty darn tall
    I can see why your Dad likes this wood Andrew it is beautiful! I have another blank a bit larger to turn and more to cut up.
    Thanks again for all the kindness.

    Decided to revisit this, I was getting ready to finish this one up and decided the more I looked at it the less I liked it. Went with a reshape and I'm much happier.

    I want a lathe but I am so very afraid that it is a giant rabbit hole. I am glad that others post there work.
    This handle has a very appealing shape.
    Nice work.

    Like the look of the synthetic knot. Be interesting to hear what you think of it.

    Once I get it set hopefully this week, I'll be reporting. Both knots are from Maggards.

    Very nice work. The grain position of the one in in your hand came out really well.

    From the beiggining through it's all the same piece, same brush I didn't like the original shape after it sat around. Reshaped it to something that didn't look like a chair spindle
    Thanks JP5
