You may have experienced this problem: you drive to a craft shop, buy a file, and go to use it, but it doesn’t have a handle. Don’t panic, most commercial woodworking files come without them, so we’re giving you the know-how to make your own. By turning a simple, comfortable shape on the lathe and using an old plumbing fixture, you can create a quick and easy solution for this roadblock. Dave Munkittrick explains the materials you’ll need to make your own file handle, so all you really have to do is get to work!
