My BB round nose scraper handle broke apart. Good excuse to turn a new handle. Its laminated red oak and mesquite.Handle measure’s about 16” and total tool length is around 23”. One coat sanding sealer and one coat wipe on poly finishes it off.

It’s always a pleasure when making your own handles. Nice job.
