Handles for CKTG

Post by jobone »

This is an order for Mark, but I thought I would post here in case anyone ends up with one of these; that way you can know the materials used in each.

Excuse the dust.

3 sets of 4
1) Gabon Ebony, Ringed Gidgee and faux ivory spacers - for the formal look
2) African Blackwood, masur birch (S) with turquoise composite stone/nickel silver spacers - love the dark rosewood mixed with turquoise and birch
3) Japanese Elm Burl (S), Tasmanian Blackwood with masur birch and G10 spacer - organic natural look and feel

Here is the first one I'm doing to a forum member. It's not glued up yet but just wanted to tease you guys with it.

Great looking handles! I am also glad to hear that CKTG will be using more custom handles highlighting natural woods/materials, as I personally am not a fan of the various colorfully dyed, heavy ones that appear frequently in the New Arrivals section of the store.
