Was looking to create my first custom razor handle. At this point I'm just working through design and fabrication how to. Looking for insight or ideas on a common man's build. I unfortunately don't own a lathe or any large scale fabricating tools so I'm trying to come up with a way to craft this using what most people have in their shop. My idea is to use 1/2 brass round stock for the socket and base and then koa wood for the handle center. My plan is to turn the brass stock to shape using metal files and a vise clamped drill as my lathe. This will be the challenging part as I think the run out on my drill chuck might make it difficult to turn it true, but hopefully I can work around it. Once dimensional I would fully drill out the head piece, and then partially drill out the base, tapping both to 10/32. I have a dowel jig that I would use to give myself a 1/2" koa wood dowel. I would then drill the wood out just bigger to have a #10 screw pass through. Next I would use 10/32 brass all thread to join brass top, passing through the wooden dowel, and into bottom piece. Both pieces would tighten down on the all thread securing the dowel and still having room on top to receive the top cap post. My plan is go full polish on the brass, and wax impregnate the wood handle (for grip and water resistance). Hopefully my drawing explains it a little more (excuse the chicken scratch).Open to all ideas and suggestions! Will start the project tomorrow and will update thread with progress pics!
