Just a couple of small items for the shop. First a ZCI with splitter. I’ve needed a ZCI w/ splitter for a while now as I’ve pretty much made the switch to thin kerf blades. The other item is a file handle. I have a lot of files and most of them need handles. As a newbie wood turner this is a great opportunity to experiment and learn how to make handles and to see and feel a bunch of different shapes.

That’s a pretty damn fine looking file handle. One more item on my mental checklist of reasons why I need a lathe.

Nice job on both items : ) I made a similar splitter for my saw.

Great job on the handle. Any old turner would give you a smile and a nod.
