I did end up turning one out. It came out fairly well, and as long as your not mashing out the butt into the wood, it should hold up for a long time.

When I turned it, I did notice that on the leading edge of the cutouts from where I drilled in there was a little bit of tear out from having no support. I think It might work better next time if I create dowels to fit into the drilled out holes to help backup the edges of the cutouts.
