So it's had a night to cure....clamp removed and unstuck from the paper towel.

Time to draw an outline of what shape handle I'm going for.

Image

Now we grind the bolts down smooth with the handle material. Slow process since you can't overheat them at this point. A 40 grit ceramic belt makes it go kind of quickly though.

With the scales flat, I use a disc sander to square everything up and get to a good, square starting point.

Image

After the disc sander.

Image

I use a Sharpie to mark where I want the front bevel to start. Makes sure both sides are even.

Image

Almost there with the front bevel.

Image

And FREAKING dinner was ready!! "I don't want to eat mommy....I want to keep playing!!"

This is where I quite for the night....almost there, probably turn to hand sanding tonight.

Image

A close-up of the bolster area.....the front "bevel" of the handle is flat from the back of the first pin to the front of the bolster. Now it's time to round everything and make everything comfortable.

Very cool! Really good call on drawing the shape of the tang cutout onto the outside of the wood, got bitten by that before! I do the same on my Saya's too so I don't cut too far in!

Add a thin vulcanized fiber spacer on each side of the white, or vise versa, this way, you both get representation on the decision.
