I’ve replaced a lot of plastic handles for tools and utensils such as bench chisels, ice cream scoops and potato peelers. Here’s the latest example. I cut a different handle profile for this peeler from the others.
For finish, i tried the General Finishes’ WTF (wood turners finish) which is a water/oil urethane hybrid. Unlike shellac or other woodturning finish, this finish is to be wiped on or brushed on and then let dry. That’s it, it’s not a friction finish. It dried under 30 minutes and I could apply about four coats in an hour or so. I still have to buff the handle for a polished look later.
