This was something fun for a workhorse workbench that I added a little drawer to. I had some scrap oak and saw in my mind a cool handle that I wanted to try and make. So I got some cuts going, used my rasp and files and added a little spokeshaving to round the edges off. Then I layed out where to put it together on the pine plywood face, spokeshaved that down on the ends and fastened it on with screws.

Did everything by hand and was just something to have fun trying on a Saturday in the shop.

Hey thanks, I always have a good time seeing what can be done and I rarely have used any or many plans for my projects. My family always asks me, you never even messed with woodshop in school?, or tools growing up?, anything? I am like….. no…lol. I think in the back of my mind I have always loved seeing guys like Norm or that kinda thing, and then I got into the Woodrights Show with Roy and I started to try some things. Here I am a little over a year just keeping it fun and experimenting. Thanks for your comments and enjoy your next build!
