Thanks again!

That would be awesome!!! Thanks!

I dont have business cards yet, but that's exactly what I've been doing. I have a bunch of the labels printed up with my website and email address on them.

I'll definitely include a bunch when I ship your order out today.

Pappers - Glad you like it!

Guys, don't be afraid to ask if you don't see what you want. I actually asked if I could get a set in poplar (I did my keezer in poplar), and he was happy to do it for me. I would think if he could make it work, he would probably try to help you out. Great seller here.

Thanks oteixeira!

I'm definitely open to ideas if anyone wants some made out of a different wood. It's been my experience that not all wood plays nicely when it comes to routing and finishing though, so keep that in mind.

I got a few orders shipped out today. The humidity here is causing the stain and clear coat to take a little longer to dry than I'd like, but i'm still on track to ship all of these out much quicker than my Etsy listing says (up to 10 days).

Subscribed!

I want to order 4 up once I know what wood I am using for my collar, likely maple to match my bar. Have you used maple yet? How did it turn out? I'm a big hockey fan, so I'm thinking of having hockey cards in the handles.

Haha, perfect timing.

I have 4 large ones made from Maple that are waiting to be finished. I have cut them out, but have not decided how to stain/finish them. They are a beautiful white maple...and I'm honestly thinking about just putting a satin clearcoat on them and letting them be as-is. If you have a particular request though, I'll be happy to try and oblige. Just let me know what you'd prefer.

It's a great wood for these handles. Very sturdy.

I dont have them listed on my Etsy site yet, so just PM me when/if you're ready to order the maple handles.

If you want the medium sized handles instead, I'll need to order the wood and wait for it to be delivered. Shouldnt be a problem at all though.

Pics would be awesome! I'd love to post some "customer photos" to the Facebook page!

Also for anyone who has purchased so far, would you guys mind taking a moment to leave feedback on Etsy? Would be much appreciated!!
