Post Need handles for an espresso machine?
Hi there woodturners!

My father in law is a huuuuuge coffee aficionado (and is slowly turning me into one as well!) and as a Christmas gift, I was going to have some custom wooden handles made for his espresso machine. I'll attach an image of what I'm talking about below. Think something about the size of a chisel handle.

A friend of mine back east in Virginia was going to make them for me as a favour, saying they'd just take him a few minutes each to run out on his lathe. Unfortunately, he's decided to move, and is in the process of building a new house - and his tools are in storage until likely the new year.

I know wooden handles are available online for these, but wanted to get him something a little more personal. Plus, they're $80 for a pair, and I've realized I can buy a (heavily) used lathe on Craigslist for about the same price, and make them myself (either that, or amputate my hands!)

The exact image is pretty much what I'm looking for, actually, in bloodwood. Anyone on here think they could reproduce these, and if so, how much?
