I had some challenging request from my coworker to make him some ’’just primitive simple’’ handles for rope, he gave me. With me… everything is but simple! I made them of oak and ash. I made second pair for my daughter too, since there was some rope in excess. Finish – teak wood oil. Lenght some 16-17cm, diameters aprox. 20-32mm.

Very cool Ivan! Did you use a boring bar or a drill to cut the inside?

Either way they look awesome.

We could use about 20 sets of something similar at the local community club…
I’ll have to suggest it to a woodturner mate…
