The blank is three pieces that has been glued up. Two Alder pieces and a piece of Walnut in the middle. Total end size was 8″ long by 2″ wide by 2″ thick.
The tail end has a very small round over. At the top, where the cutter insert goes, it has a generous cove coming down to 3/4″. I use the mic to make sure I didn’t go pass 3/4. The handle area has a very gentle taper to fit my hand. You may want a different grip, this works for me.
Sanded three different grits. 120 grit, 150 grit, and 220 grit. Two coats of Boiled Linseed Oil, wait about ten minutes between coats. Using bees wax bar press it against the work piece until it melts then move along the entire piece. Once cover in wax, then take a clean terry cloth to buff the wax out. This make a great and quick finish.
