I had the need for a couple of handles and I had just enough pistachio wood to make them out of.
One is a replacement for the short one on my core drill that I use to drill out a bowl and set the depth.
The other one is for my new mini-bedan (5/32” wide). This one could have been a little longer but I was out of wood. I need the bedan for an upcoming project. It will be light cuts so it should be okay. The bedan is made from a 3/8 square steel bar with a 3/16 hardened tool bit welded in so it is flush on the bottom .
The drill handle is clear lacquered and the bedan handle is finished with EEE and Shellawax in the lathe. Both have brass ferrules from one plumbing fitting.
