I had a nice piece of spalted maple that I got from the firewood pile and I turned it into some lumber. I was left with a smaller block and decided to use some of that to make a handle for a rasp I have.
I don’t have a lathe in my shop so I shaped the handle mostly by hand. Once I had the rough shape done I chucked it in the drill press and finished shaping it with sand paper.
I finished it with a couple coats of Tung Oil.
I also made another chisel/tool holder. Just a piece of cherry with notches cut to fit the tools. It has a cleat on the back which attaches to my tool wall..
