Hello builders O' rods.
Does anyone out there have a source for those nice looking burned corks and other fancy bits for handles.
I think I would like to build a pretty handle on the little stick.
Something a'la Meiser would be nice.

I bought some extra select cork from this guy on ebay. It was pretty decent and required little to no filling.

I've been putting maple burl, curly maple, fiddleback, etc handles on my rods and they're fantastic. Need a lathe to make your own but if you don't have one try Benshona Rods (www.benshona.com). Or, wait until winter when I might have some spare time . . . .

pics?

Nice Sparky.
Do you have any pics to show us?
I would love to see what others are doing to pimp out there sticks.
Right now I am trying to find some nice feathers for inlays.
There are so many nice ones out there.
Just have to keep trying combos until I get one that looks just right for me.
I just might have to take you up on waiting for rings. Or I could finish this one and do another.
