New tool handle and Tutorial

I made a new handle for a P & N bowl gouge I bought a little while back. I used a piece of walnut I had lying around. I also took a bunch of step by step pictures and made a tutorial out of them. If anyone is interested, send me an email at:

free of course.

Mike, I would be more than appreciative to receive your tutorial. I have asked for some P & N tools myself for my birthday, and have never made a tool handle before. Great job on the handle. Just out of curiosity, are the "groove rings" in the handle for grip, or for looks?

He Kenbo,
The rings are there for both. I like the looks, but they do provide some good grip too. Plus they're fun to do. I emailed you the file today.

Nice handle Mike. A day too late on the tutorial though..... I just finished mine last night....

Going to send you an email to see if you had any different steps than I did though. I had a few, "how am I going to do that?" moments.....
