Thank you all and I wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

For the past several weeks, Jimmy Buffet and Bob Marley have been floating to the top of my iPod and have gotten me into an "Island Christmas" frame of mind.  The two handles shown below reflect the results of my altered state.

As a small measure of thanks for the support this community has given my work, I would like to offer these handles to the first 2 members who reply to this thread.  Please note your preference for the Blue/White or the Blue/Green handle and PM me your mailing address.  My accountant (who I wake up next to each morning) has informed me that it is not a sustainable business practice to give things away.  So, to keep peace in the house, I have to limit the shipping to domestic US addresses.


Blue/White - as the son of a son of a sailor (apologies to Mr. Buffett), this handle is made from a resin pour where I was attempting to create the image of the wake of a sailboat plying the deep blue Caribbean.  If you close one eye and look at it under the influence of a drink with a little umbrella in it, you might be able to see it.

The first picture is a standard handle shape I have made before.  The second picture shows the fittings reversed, which creates a completely different look and is very comfortable in the hand.  Let me know which orientation you prefer.

Blue/Green - As you get closer into port, the waters will change to a lighter blue/green appearance.  With the help of the same libation mentioned above, close the other eye and imagine your boat at anchor in a secluded bay.

Merry Christmas to all.


Thanks,  Bob

The blue/white pictures are of the same handle, just different orientations of the fittings.  That handle has been spoken for.  The Blue/Green handle is available, if you are interested.

It might be a few weeks away, but I just received the item today.

Will be using it over the weekend with one of the Maggards head.
