    Was thinking one with a stripe of a different color wood down the center

    i've thought of that as well but i think it would crack/break over time because the wood is thin and subject to a lot of stress, a stripe of different wood on the handle if you're using two different types of wood for the spurtle itself would be cool, never really paid much attention to the time it takes to make one, i'm guessing 30 minutes, but i've made a lot of them and tend to make them in batches of 10 or more

    Looks great Dave! I like the way the grain doesn’t run down the center of the handle but is offset.

    Yeah i do too, the blanks are 18” X 15” to start so I just shift the handle off to one side, double stick tape the pattern on, band saw then router, oil then done, thanks Coop

  4. Has anyone have trouble ordering Klingspor sandpaper ? I can’t get on their website and my calls to customer service are not returned, of course I’m almost out and in the middle of a big project but that’s my fault, thanks for the replies

    We actually discussed this, but I am unaware of any supply house in the area that custom blends wood stains.

    Sherwin Williams in my area will custom blend stain, I give them a scrap to test on and a sample of what I want it to be and they mix it up with great results, looking great Ross
