This thread is intended to show some of the handles that I have been creating this year.

Feel free to comment or make suggestions

After meeting you and first seeing your work last September, it's just amazing to see how far you've come in such a short time. If I didn't know better I'd say you've been making handles for years. Truly beautiful work and some of the coolest handles being made today!
If God wanted me to be a vegetarian he wouldn't have made animals taste so good.

What kind of planning/practice did you do before tackling the ones with unique construction - they came out fantastically!

It took me a while to figure out how to construct it. There tends to be more planning, time and measuring than normal wa handles. It opens up using tons of cool materials, which is sweet.
