DH1 - HANDLE FINISHING


DH1 - Handle Scales & Pins


I started by truing up the front (ricasso ends) of the slabs and measured and cut the pins.

Some shaping close to the lines before epoxy goes on.
These temporary wooden pins will be replaced with the brass/stainless mosaic pins.






These particular pins are 1/8" mosaic pins; brass tube with five stainless rods and epoxy inside. Very elegant. They smell like fibreglass resin when you cut them.

Glued up, pins in place and first tung oil application.
