So, now that the oil finish had dried, I got a couple good close up shots of the handle from the last post. I realized that none of the shots really showed the wood (blame the lighting in there, terrible for photography).
Still not sure what the wood is, it was old and dusty from a pile that I salvaged. It has some really nice warm tones that Walnut doesn’t typically have, so it might Koa or some other tropical species. It does have some nice color to it though.
