Ok, I decided to do a little spindle work tonight, these were all made from some locust I picked up early this year, I cut it all up into rough blocks and had set them aside to dry, not really sure what kind of locust it is from, either black or honey i am assuming.
Anyway, what drove me to put these on here is not the really great craftmanship or super design in my handles but what seems almost to hard to believe. I had finish making one of the handles, glued on the ferrule and set it in my room to dry. Well, a few minutes later, I decided im not too tired and I my as well make another one for the other hollowing tool i have. So, i picked up another rough piece of locust, similiar in size to the first and began turning, well I got lazy and decided not to go and look at the other handle in my room to see where I had place the rings and burn marks and thought well its just a tool handle, who cares, the’ll be close enough. Well it was a real shocker when I place them next to each other to find they were almost identical, they were’nt more than a 16th off in most places. :)
