Hey folks!

This is another safety razor handle turned from a piece of black walnut that came from our tree in our yard. We had an ice storm a couple of years ago and had some large limbs come down. I kept the good stuff. This was from a small crotch section of the tree. This piece was just large enough to turn this handle. It is finished with some Watco oil (cherry), red latex paint, black spray paint and 3 coats of CA glue. Topped off with a coat of furniture wax. The button on the end is a 1/4” SS bolt that I ground round and polished to finish off the end and add some weight (thanks lumberjoe!).

Thanks for checking it out!
