Step 1: What Do You Need
The awesome free palette wood and an old file
Step 2: Get Your Wood Straight
Plane down the pallet wood straight so you can have a nice glue joint!
Step 3: Glue and Clampsp
Make sure you use a nice amount of glue and a good amount of clamps so the wood won't split.
Step 4: Cleaning the File
I used a grinder to clear all the file edges. Then used a water sand paper to sharpen all the edges.
Step 5: Plaine Again
Plained the blank so it your be square again !
Step 6: Cut!
I cutes 2 equal sizes to make a square blank for the handle

Step 8: Glue It "one Last Time"
I glue again . But with reverse so it would give a diferent look to the tool!

I dicided how long i wanted the handle and cut it to size !
Step 10: Turning
I turned the handle to a shape that i like and feel confortabale with !
Step 11: A Piece of Pipe "yummi"
I cuted a piece o Inox steel pipe to use as a piece to prevent the wood from crackle when you add the tool tip !
Step 12: Drill Drill a Hole
A hole to the tool tip . I tried to drill as straight as possible... a hole for the tip in the video did´nt loock that straight damit. the eye meter failed me !!!!
