Needed some new handles for my bench vises. Turned these on the lathe out of some “scrap” I had on hand. The curly maple ends are from a very small cut-off from the legs of my coffee table. And the mahogany came form a dowel I had laying around.
One of the curly maple ends has some of the craziest grain I’ve ever seen. The grain and curl just changes direction. I though it was a glue-up at first, but after a thorough inspection, I”ve decided it’s one piece. Even the end-grain has a crazy pattern but all the grain lines match up….weird. Just thought I’d take a few pics while they look nice, before I put them on the vises and beat the crap outta em.
