    I ordered some spacer and liner materials for handles. I would like to do some two-part handles using contrasting woods with some spacers in between. Maybe alternating white and black or some such.

    What glue do you use to glue this sort of handle together?

    I'm assuming you lay out your liner, then glue each part to the liner and tighten it all up with a bunch of clamps. I'm good for clamps. But am I wrong that you build it on the liner or do you do it separately and add liner? Hope I'm explaining my question properly.

    Thanks

    I usually assembly the blocks then true them up before gluing to the liner. Same epoxy as everything else but might add in some dye to match the spacer.

    Grahamm,

    Are you talking about spacer material between the scale sections or between the scale and the tang?

    These are assembled as scales, then attached.

    Thanks Guys.
    I guess really I was asking about both. Looks like building the scales first is correct than adding a liner to a trued flat scale is the way to go.
