Hi fellow LJ’s .. It’s time for my first post inhere.
A friend of mine persuaded me to try out one of his lathes – and now I’m kinda hooked.
Inspired by several projects inhere, one of the first things I made on the lathe was a new handle for an old chisel. And then another one. And another one.
The handles are made out of walnut.

Comments and/or suggestions are more than welcome :)

Nice work! you’ll probably get more use out of these with their new handles than with the old!

Nice job. Always good to properly maintain your tools.

I didn’t think friends were supposed to introduce friends to crack… I mean lathes.

Nice looking handles.

Those handles look great! I guess you should keep doing it.
