    this is my first attempt at a cane handle as this is the first time ive used a rasp i dont have a lot to compare to but i do think the Narex rasps i have are a bit course for this type of work but so far so good

    Hi Eddy
    The handle looks fine , why do you say the rasp is a bit course? Did it take a lot of sanding to get the finish in the photos

    Hi david
    yes it took a bit more sanding than i expected but that could have been down to my inexperiance with the rasps maybe when i’ve made some more i’ll get”a handle on it” thanks.

    David, Eddy, Paul has said that the Narex rasp removes wood very quickly, so I would think it is quiet course.

    That Narex rasp is quite course. You can get quite a lot of the marks out with the scraper, but another option would be to follow it up with a standard half round file from, for example, Bahco. They are quite inexpensive. Incase that’s any help.
