    The fact that you lined up the burl after the spacer is a very nice touch!

    If you don't mind answering, how long does a handle like this take you to make? I am guessing a couple of hours once you get good at it but am curious.

    Bill13, I don't mind sharing. It takes roughly 4 to 6 hours from start to finish.
    I do a lot of hand sanding, 100grit to 8000 all by hand. It might be more time effective to do some of the lower grit sanding on a belt sander but I find its easier to make the handles completely flat by hand sanding.

    Thanks everyone else who commented, your kind words and encouragement make it all worth while.
