Fairly cool weather here for August so I decided to take a walk in the woods looking for blanks. Found a few bits o maple which were nice but nothing to write home about. Then I stumbled across this young ash. Don't know how I'd missed it in previous trips, but I snagged it this time. Not only does it have a natural root crook handle, the handle root turns back on itself like a turned nose. Cant tell if it actually connects back on the handle or just butts up against it. Already drooling to sink the spoke shave/rasps into it. Gonna be a long year of seasoning...
