This afternoon Ive made three handles for new jigs.

The design is the same that I’ve done for an old project

I lilke the design because of the protection on the front of the hand

Comments welcome bad and good

Thanks for looking

Looks like comfortable handle and hopefully will be in a safe position on the new jigs also .

I would like to get a handle on a lot of things … oops wrong forum!

Those handles are really nice work.
I understand about protection for the “front of the hand” because at times my knuckles really get a workout.

What do plan to mount them on?

Digger, nice design. I have used a similar pattern on some of my jigs. I like a little more curve in the top of the hand hole. A branch with a fork also works.
