I thought I would start my own thread as I have a few bits I have been asked to do . Also those that are not interested can ignore it .

The first handle here is for a Vesuvius, made out of Blackwood . It is very hard but machines well and the picture is of it sanded to 600 grit with no finish . A bit of research is needed into what finish will be used as the wood is dense and has natural oils . On the internet it is suggested to sand up to 2000 grit and polish ..

Fantastic! Can’t wait to see where this leads 😁 

I finished mine with Osmo oil. A light wipe in the evening, buff up in the morning. I’ve been doing this every few days and they are coming along beautifully.

Are you able to make the Vesuvius joystick and brew handles also?

Thanks Kenny .. The picture is from a PF .. Next on job list is the three toggles . Is that what you meant ? If yes I am going to give it a go . The Blackwood is so hard I’m going to thread the wood and give that ago .Softer woods I’d make a brass insert for them .

Yeah that’s right - steam, water and brew handle

Can’t wait to see how they turn out!

I’d be up for that if they look as good as Mildred’s

Mildred’s are made from Thuya Burr very exotic and the timber is very expensive . But if money is no object look up Snakewood 🤑🤑🤑

No volunteers for snakewood though 🤣.. I’m surprised you didn’t ? It would be very very exclusive ..

when ive used Blackwood it works well with Danish oil, then a top wax but osmo polyx is a good bet as well - ive used it for my new oak worktops in the kitchen and its standing up well, trick is to use  osmo wood protector first for extra water resistance https://www.osmouk.com/sitechaptern.cfm?bookid=Products&chapter=82&page=254#4006

It sits deep in the wood to prevent water ingress or water stains 👍
