    LOL, I went through a few years of trial and error, and I still sometimes see things that are so easy and I just hadn't thought of them. Depending on the material and the number I am working on, I start the angles on the disc sander table or the band saw, just to get them approximately right, and then finish by hand on the belt. I don't really care whether they are exactly 45* as long as they are all reasonably symmetrical.

    Amboyna and Philippine Ebony

    This is a large(ish) handle made out of two of my favorite woods, amboyna burl and Philippine ebony. I got this piece of amboyna from Craig Stevens and the pictures do not do it justice (my camera kinda sucks). The spacers are M3 nickle/silver. In addition to the side taper on the ferrule there is also a slight vertical taper.

    Height:
    @ end cap- 28mm
    @ front spacer- 26.5mm
    @ front of ferrule- 24mm

    Width:
    @ end cap- 25mm
    @ front spacer- 23mm
    @ front of ferrule- 18mm

    Length- 143mm

    Spalted Mango and Monkey Pod

    I apologize in advance for the crappy pictures, the sun was setting and my camera sucks. This is a medium sized handle made of spalted mango and monkey pod, with white marbled bakelite spacers. Unfortunately, the "Honu" inlay didn't come out very well on this one.

    Height:
    @ end cap-24mm
    @ front of ferrule- 22mm

    Width:
    @ end cap- 21.5mm
    @ front spacer- 18.5mm
    @ front of ferrule- 15.5mm

    Length- 138mm
