This is a rosewood and maple laminated handle that I made for my new grooving/detailing tool that has replaceable bits. I did not have any rosewood thicker than 3/4” so this handle is laminated lengthwise and I wanted to see what it would look like if I also laminated it crosswise with a contrasting wood. I like all my handles to look different so I can easily pick them out of the rack without even looking at the tip. When all the pieces were still square, I glued in a 1/4” dowel up the middle for insurance …. to keep the integrity of the handle in case it got dropped..
It is finished with clear lacquer.
