Are these handles going to be turned? You didn’t specify, but I was imagining they would be for small gardening tools or grill utensils, something of that nature. If you were planning on turning them, you could always drill out on the lathe. I’m sure others will chime in here, but after a couple dozen pens, I’ve never had problems drilling with a good quality parabolic style bit, even in burls where the grain is all over the place.
