    Yesterday glued handle to the blade and left overnight. Found the following today:



    I feel sorry for another wasted piece of nice wood, but that's the price of learning

    Bro, that sucks. Did you use a slow set epoxy or a quick set? I've found that the quicker epoxies I've used (15min or faster) create a whole lot of heat while setting, could be the cause.

    Be well,

    I made a stupid thing and used gorilla glue instead of epoxy. Used a lot of glue… when I knocked this handle from blade about half of the glue was still not harden. Anyway, I've already started making two new handles

    Yeah, gorilla glue doesn't work real well for handles, it tends to expand...alot. It also needs moisture to cure properly.
