A few months back I ordered a carbide tip tool handle (steel only and carbide cutter from eBay) and made a herring bone pattern tool blank for it using left over scraps. I used walnut, maple, cherry, and mahogany with a brass ferrel. Total cost was about 40.00.

Nice handle $40 in it and it looks like a $150 tool.
