For this week’s assignment, I made a wooden handle.
I started with a 2″ diameter wooden pine dowel from Home Depot that I cut into 12″ segments with a miter saw.
I started with the goal of trying to make the following shape.
I started with marking some outline dimensional measurements.
Then, I attached it to the lathe using a 4-jaw chuck & did a test run:
Unfortunately, trying to follow the measurements was more difficult than anticipated. Ended up taking off too much material & got the following shape.
Chopped off the top & sanded the top roughly with belt sander to get the final smoother surface.
