Woodturning Garden Tool Handles

Woodturning Garden Tool Handles

Wood turning tool handles for a set of garden tools. I use some top quality figured maple to make a really pretty set of three. A little something to keep busy with while stuck at home…

My email can be found on my YouTube page under the “About” tab. That’s where you’ll need to send photos of your work if you want me to share them with my audience. Right now, I’ve got about a month and a half waiting list, but I’ll be happy to add you to it. But… I won’t without your specific permission to do so, so don’t forget to let me know, otherwise I’ll just enjoy seeing what you show me!
Thanks to all for watching, and if you enjoyed the project and video, don’t forget to subscribe and click that notification bell! Thanks for helping my channel grow!

I’m also on Facebook. It’s just a regular page… look for the little carved bald guy wearing bib overalls under my name, Rod Humphrey. You’ll see things there that I don’t necessarily show on YouTube, but I’m not very active there.

    Thanks for sharing,,Semper Fi

  7. Margie Steininger on July 12, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    always choose to pray instead of panic. didn’t used to because i had no faith when i was young, but my faith is big now – take great comfort in knowing He is in control. I agree with you.

  8. David Nelson on July 12, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    thank you for the calming words, Praying always works. Semper Fi my friend.

    Nice handles…fascinating how you add the string…you have encouraged me to get out in the garden today, thanks…👍

  12. paul gamblin on July 12, 2022 at 11:06 pm

    I love the maple shimmering when you put on the oil finish! (My nephew is a recently-retired Marine, coincidentally.) Semper Fi!

  13. Greg Bailey on July 12, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    Science knows why we have a pandemic and how to combat the virus. Praying is at best a coin flip of a chance of being effective. Science disproved the effectiveness of praying lng ago. Nice handles……

  14. Pete Hoffert on July 12, 2022 at 11:08 pm

    Once again, very nice work Rod. Stay safe my friend.

  15. Amanumis on July 12, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    I really needed to hear the bit you said about praying vs worrying. I’m going to use that to try to help a friend.
    I hope you and yours are doing well in these uneasy times.
    Simper Fi

  16. Garethmark on July 12, 2022 at 11:13 pm

    Thank you Rod for your calming and level headed words while the world seems to be going into melt down. An interesting project. Stay safe, Semper Fi

    Thank you for clearly expressing your faith in Jesus. We are safe in His hands and within His plan for our lives, no matter what. And yes, please make an effort to look for those less fortunate than us and give a generous, joyful helping hand. Sacrificially if necessary.

  29. Martin Dufour on July 12, 2022 at 11:24 pm

    Ahhh I don’t understand skipping part of a video you are interested in. You are so calming for my anxiety(not from the pandemic but everyday thing I have to face). I could hear you talk all day. Thanks to you for giving us your heart and soul in every segment you provide! Stemper Fi sir

    Heck of a nice job. I have missed your video’s for the past several weeks, not sure why since I have been subscribed and my bell seems to have lost its ring. Semper FI buddy, your retired Chief Gunner. Be Safe.

  39. Gavin Coyle on July 12, 2022 at 11:36 pm

    Beautiful work Rod, I absolutely love the Maple its gorgeous. Also fair play to you for doing your giveaway it’s just my luck all over the time I don’t watch the video in time is the time a giveaway is open worldwide 🤣🤣🤣 but seriously Congratulations to the winner and thank you once again for sharing a great project 👍👍👍 ps Stay safe my friend

    From Martin Luther in the face of the Black Death:

    "I shall ask God mercifully to protect us. Then I shall fumigate, help purify the air, administer medicine and take it. I shall avoid places and persons where my presence is not needed in order not to become contaminated and thus perchance inflict and pollute others and so cause their death as a result of my negligence. If God should wish to take me, he will surely find me and I have done what he has expected of me and so I am not responsible for either my own death or the death of others. If my neighbor needs me however I shall not avoid place or person but will go freely as stated above. See this is such a God-fearing faith because it is neither brash nor foolhardy and does not tempt God."

  42. John Crow on July 12, 2022 at 11:41 pm

    Semper Fi my friend. Your channel is my favorite. Your calm and gentle voice makes watching what you do, fun and enjoyable. Thank you for the words tonight. You are spot on. You are a credit to our society.

  43. Thomas Shunk on July 12, 2022 at 11:42 pm

    I’m a little late for the contest but I just wanted to say that I thoroughly enjoy your videos, from start to finish. I appreciate the craftsmanship you place in all of your projects.

  44. Kobie Kaasjager on July 12, 2022 at 11:43 pm

    Dear Rod first thank you for the fantastic work you always do these are very beautiful. Second thank you for the absolute calming way you talk to us, and I promise you I watch every video right through to the end. What you said about everything going on at this moment with this virus is so true. I am glad to see that you and your family are still healthy. God bless you and your family a thousand fold and protect you with every promise in Psalm 91. Semper Fi dear friend.

    Semper Fi Marine! Nice job on the handles.

  47. Graham Davis on July 12, 2022 at 11:48 pm

    As another great person said "a little bit of religion has never hurt anyone hatred is what hurts"

  48. YowzaBowzaWowza on July 12, 2022 at 11:49 pm

    Great channel and message. Love the handles you made but noticed that those tools came from China. We have all got to quit buying Chinese made products. We must not subsidize Communism. Evil incarnate.

  49. singlended on July 12, 2022 at 11:49 pm

    Tool rest too far from work?

  50. Andre Faucher on July 12, 2022 at 11:50 pm

    Great job, I loved the comment about worrying and prayer. Praying leads to Peace and worrying leads to panic.
