I need to make a few wa handles. I don't think I will have a problem making the sides with a disc grinder, but any suggestions would be appreciated. The bigger problem I have is drilling the deep slot in the handle with my drill press.
I probably can make 5 holes in a row but what is the method used to clean out between the holes?
Most will have a decorative ferrule and Cocobolo for the main wood. Tang is 7/64 thick, do I use 1/8 drill bit? Should i use a pin, epoxy, burn or just tight fit or some other technique?
