I made some sample handles a few weeks ago for a gentleman who sells walking sticks.
He called and asked for more so I turned these.
Average time on the lathe from square blank to 320 grit sanded was 10 minutes.
Some pieces were Curly Movingui or Curly Morare.
I don’t know the species of the lighter colored wood, but it has a VERY irritating odor.

I made a 16 minute video of the process…
