This was a quick project with scrap material. A study in restoration.
As a side bonus, I learned what a roofing hammer is.
The final product. Purple heart with hickory inlay. Lessons learned, skill points achieved. On to the next one.
A white vinegar bath for a few hours made for easy rust removal with an abrasive pad on the 4" angle grinder.
To break up the purple heart, I inlayed a strip of hickory into the bottom of the handle.
