Carbide Cutter Gouge Handle (Jet 1220)

Handle for Carbide Cutter

From a piece of firewood (species unknown)

Finished with two coats of Watco Danish Oil

After I was done, I decided to add some detail to the handle. So I removed the bar and turned a conical head piece to hold the handle centered on the lathe.

Then I mounted the handle as shown. And with the diamond shaped carbide cutter, I cut small grooves in the handle, and then with a guitar string I burned the detail lines as shown:

Blow up of one end

and blowup of the other end

Final result with re-assembled handle and bar. I took this opprotunity to drill out the hole a little more so that the bar would fit all the way into the handle.
