Step 6: Cut Off Branch

Picture of Cut Off Branch
Up until this point we had left the handle attached to the branch the whole time we were shaping it because it was simply easier to work on as a large piece...it's easier to clamp down on the part of the handle that you are going to throw away after all.

Grab a fine tooth saw, Japanese or other, and cut the handle to length.  There's no right size to make, just size it to whatever looks good with your coffee machine and fits your hand.

Clean up the cut on the disc and belt sander.
