    I think it is important to do some sanding on a granite plate. It helps to remove metal and wood at the same rate (as opposed to sanding on a padded surface), but on fine grits I do sand on a padded surface, as it gives a nicer finish and material removal is not an issue.

    Thanks, It is not so much bad luck, as being too heavy handed with the drill press.

    The more I look at that one, the more I like it. I think the spacers are so thin and close together, it really doesn't look wierd. It's like one fancy spacer.

    In general, I like it. In most cases I think even the nicest spacer can 'disappear' when it is between two very catchy pieces of wood. I think this is borderline in your handle but because it is a bit thicker overall, I am sure it will look great when finished.

    Sorry about the palm piece. That stuff can be a bit brittle and rushing on the drill press is risky. Same thing happened to me recently. One customer asked me to make a handle in a very unusual design and he gave me the measures down to 1/16". When I finally had it rght, the ironwood ferrule cracked. I put on a new ferrule and resand it as carefully as possible without takingoff too much material. We'll see if I will get away with it...

    Oh, and before I forget: really excellent work and great materials.

    That sucks Mike! It was looking really good. If you have a band saw, you can likely salvage the handle portion, shape a new ferrule with the spacer attached to it and bring this one back again.
    The new handle combo looks amazing to me! A little Rader-esque...very nice
