Tool Handles for West HIgh Woodworking Class

As part of a program by my woodturning club, Badger Woodturners, several of us have been mentoring the woodturning students in Madison's West High School's woodworking classes.  I began working in the program last Spring, and have been doing it two afternoons a week since the beginning of school this Fall.  The school received a number of unhandled Thompson Tool bowl gouges, which have slowly been acquiring handles.  I decided to turn handles for two of the ⅜" gouges, and the photos show the result.  The woods are spalted maple and Padauk.  The ferrules are copper plumbing fittings.
