267825 scott grandstaff <scottg@s...> 2019‑02‑10 Re: two-piece hickory hammer handles?
For a while I knew a guy named Jesse who was making really beautiful 
laminated tool handles.
Jesse had (has) a great eye for design, color and proportion.  So the 
handles were outright works of art.
   But I always thought of them as decorative more than practical.

When I am making handles a little extra trim piece or a scrap inside the 
eye or something I will glue on and trust.  Nothing critical.
    I wouldn't gamble the fate of my skin and bones to a full laminated 
main handle,
  in a hard work setting.
  Rake shovel nippers,......... who cares.   But tools that fly fast and 
hit hard I am cautious about.
     yours scott
