Thanks for all the great suggestions. I think I will try making the square block and see how that works. I really like the drill press chuck idea but since this is on the end of a tenon of a handle it can’t be put into a chuck. I see I used the word dowel once in my first note and I shouldn’t have.

Per Rick M.’s question….yes, I am going to use 3 wedges. I’ll get them all started at the same time so I can tap them down together to ensure that they end up the same width at the top of the tenon.
