I took a short break from the desks that I am building to turn a couple of tool handles on the lathe. The top one is an Auriou rasp and the bottom one is a Gramercy Tools rasp.
I used a piece of Tulipwood for the Auriou and some Osage Orange for the Gramercy. I polished them on the buffer and put on a coat of wax for finish.
I could never understand why such high-end rasps as the Auriou rasps come with such crappy handles…it always bothered me. I think that it looks better now.
The Gramercy handle was already OK, but it also looks better now.
