I got the tools from Rockler for a Christmas gift for my Nephew and his wife. The handles are made of Maple and Padauk.

Beautiful handles. Very nicely crossed two types of woods and very nice shape.

Very nice. My curiosity has me asking … how did you make the handle blanks before turning them? Laminates? inlays?

Very nice handles. Beautiful glue up. How did you keep the padauk from bleeding into the maple when you applied the finish?

I used this taper fixture to cut the slots for the inserts with a little modification for the short length of the handles. Do this four times then turn the handles. The important thing is not to cut all the way through. This helps significantly with the glue up of the inserts.

It did bleed a little. I have done this before, but not with padauk and I was not aware that it would bleed. I try not to make the same mistake once, but not this time.
