Tutorial making German wood shovel handles

Hi Guys

Here is a tutorial on how I make my German wood shovel handles, I was never a 100% happy with the shovel round head on my wood handles so I have made a cutting tool to make these more symmetrical. The handles are made from 1/4" wood dowel. Hope you find this interesting and pick up a few tips. I needed 30 shovels to fill orders and started out to make 40 handles and lost 4 in the process.


















Regards
Mike
