Yes, I use G Flex for essentially all handle construction.

Sometimes, though, with Wa construction I use G Flex for the first filling and then when it sets and you might get a small vacancy around the tang at the front of the handle, then I'll use a 5 minute to fill the void.

Fork Project!

I was sent two very old, very rusty carving forks for a restoration project. These are old, forged forks from Lamson...they were in the basement during a flood, so you can imagine how they looked:

Yeah, bad.

I was told "You know me, I like shiney!"....so:

I made it shiny.

Now it's time to put a handle on it.

To be continued.....

My jaw almost hit the floor, but luckily the contraction from my ear-to-ear grin, and yelling "Holy CRAP!" prevented my mandible from dislocating.

That looks very similar to one I got from Pierre....and you have put in alot more work. Did you do it by hand, or Dremel to get in between the tines?

The inside of the tines is not 100% complete. I used the belt grinder to start, now it's hand work. I used a dowel wrapped in sandpaper to get into the round part at the top of the inside of the tines.

Thanks, Adam, ordered a bit of the West this evening.

Doing my first wa-handle on a Tojiro ITK. If it goes OK, I'll try with a bit better wood on the next ones.
