After my friend who does metalwork seen the tool handle i made for my file he was wondering could i make him a similar one for a blade he made i had no problem with it and here it is, it is pretty similar to the other but with a few changes overall i prefer this one, it just has a better feel

Nice job! I’ve worked with Bubinga in the past as well and wondered how you felt about turning it? I just recently got a lathe and have a few old pieces hanging around and thought I’d try it out. However I do think this is one of the species you need to be careful with the dust from; may be toxic.

Thanks and again it looks great.

Dig the unique handle. Like the wood and the beautiful shape. Great job!
