These were my New Years Projects. I replaced handles on a few of the old chisels I have in my shop.
Three curved socket chisels. Turned handles from recycled maple from a discarded bench top. Hard maple with Leather bolster pads.
The 2” flat tang chisel handle is turned from hard maple, with brass ferrules at the tang and bolster. The brass is from the plumbing aisle. They are a couple flare nuts, thread on to the wood tenon the turned the corner off at the lathe.
All these are now sharpened and back to working the shop.
I still have almost a dozen old socket chisels to rehandle. Maybe I can get to those in a few weeks.
