Is this joined and turned? Simple miters? A very lovely comfortable looking handle. Can’t wait till I need one!

Thanks for the comments,
I cut the pieces of wood at 45 degree angles gluing two pieces together at a time. After they have dried I rotate each peace and cut a 45 again and glue them all together and turn it on the lathe. I then cut the handle on the bandsaw, rout it smooth with a template and attach it to the shaft. I bore the shaft on the lathe deep enough to go beyond the miter cuts and slip a 3/8 steel all thread rod in it for strength. I leave about 1 1/2 inches sticking out of the shaft to attach the handle using epoxy.
