At long last I have completed a project. Wood Turning Chisel Handles and some Engineers File Handles. The Timber I have used is very old, over sixty years. It is Australian hardwood but I really don’t know exactly what sort of tree it came from. To make the handles I used some old and very basic quality turning chisels that my Brother purchased many years ago and never used. He is more the Metal Man, so the engineers file handles are for him.
You will notice a few nail holes in the wood as this is timber that had a previous life and is now a born again usable tool that hopefully will create something as I progress along the Lumber Trail and attempt more projects.
I did not want to hide the nail holes as it is important to me to be totally honest in my presentation of projects. There are also lots and lots of imperfections in my work, hopefully in time my ability will improve but in the mean time It is great being a Lumber Jock and each day I enjoy looking at the LJ Site and going WOW!!! at the terrific talent and amazing projects that are presented by all the Guys & Gals.
