So I found this old walker turner lathe on craigslist not too far away. I wasn’t really lathe shopping but this old girl popped up so cheap I couldnt resist, and its the one tool my shop was missing (so I tell the wife). so while waiting for my new supernova 2 chuck and bowl gouges to make their way through shipping I thought I’d try out the old disston spindle gouges that came with the lathe and make some handles for a couple gouges that didn’t have. This ones my favorite, and the old j a s swan co gouge looked like it deserved a nice walnut handle. Handle length is 12 in, overall 19 in. Finish is tung oil.
