The woodworking portion of this project is the Oak Handle, I didn’t have a bowl scraper so I started looking online to purchase one and the cheapest I could find was $80 which I almost bought. I was in the shop last week trying to clean up and organize when I ran across some Buck Bros turning tools that came with my first Craigslist lathe. There was a 1” skew chisel that had bowl scraper written all over it so after a little grinding, drilling, turning and half of a $1.19 3/4” copper coupler I have myself a nice hefty bowl scraper that works superb.
I do apologize I know it’s more a tool than wood working but wood turning was involved plus I’m sure there’s a lot of turners out there that are money conscious like myself and this saved me at least $70 + dollars on the low end
As always thanks for looking and thanks for sharing your wonderful projects that keep us all inspired
Finish is Doctors Woodshop, walnut oil, carnauba wax and shellac wood turning finish topped with his walnut oil microcrystal paste wax (wow what a mouthful) but I have to say I have become a fan of his finishes and his friction polish does a nice job as well
