My mother got grandma’s cookware after she passed. When I was visiting my mom she asked if I could look and see if there was anything I could do to fix the handles. I used 1” square walnut turning it on the lathe using emery for the shaping. I then fit and finished with linseed oil. My son bought me the lathe about seven years ago before he passed and this is the first project I used it for. I found that sandpaper does better for me than the tools.

Nice way to save a nice set of pots. Looks like they will continue to be in the family for a long time to come and now they have another piece of a story added to them.

Great job on the pretty handles and great choice on the walnut. I’m sure Mom is happy.
