I finished the other two handles that I am considering for the TF in my post four above. Cocobolo and maple; and Ron-Ron, African Blackwood spacer and desert ironwood. I think Ron-ron is a very under rated wood if for no other reason than the translation is Rum- Rum.

Since I'm here, I'll post some other handles.

Cocobolo on a Yoshikane 240. I also made the table out of cocobolo. There are better pictures somewhere. The other side is actually better.
I made most of these with hand tools on my balcony or coffee table from information I got on this forum. I would like to express a deep sense of gratitude to the members who generously shared their knowledge. I've learned a lot. Thank you all.
Would you have any interest in starting your own thread talking about your tools, methods, lessons, etc? I understand if not but this is something I'm very interested in and would love to read your insights.
