Some of you might remember when I made a drawer pull using the drill press. I got the idea from an article by Fine Woodoworking Magazine. I thought that it might be possible to extend the idea to rasp handles, but the added length could present a few problems. Because the rasp handle is considerably longer than a drawer pull and would add to the force exerted by the rasp, I thought that this would need to be circumvented. I came up with the idea of using a sharpened threaded rod as a drive center. This seemed to do the trick nicely and has opened up the drill press-rasp/lathe method to new potential.

Video coming soon.

Interesting idea.
