Great for walkin’ or whoopin’ if the necessity arises.
It is not as ugly as I thought it would be, but not as nice as it should be, either. Mostly because I hurried. My lathe work could have been quite a bit neater and crisper, but it doesn’t look too bad from a distance… or if you look in the distance in these photos instead of the details. :)
Walnut and hard maple. The handle was turned in two pieces. The shaft part of the handle has long tenons on each end epoxied into holes I drilled into the handle and shaft. It was a fun ‘do it in a day’ project that I am sure I will do again soon… only better.
