It seems to have self-destructive tendencies. How about "Kamikazi" or "Suicidal Suzie"  :)

That's a tough one Pat. The ideal thing would have been to put a thin lam between the Bamboo and core. Now the next best thing would be to put a thin lam extending past the handle a couple inches on both side and between the handle and core. This lam should be thin enough to bend with the bow but still add some strength at the handle area.

Marc, I will add another lam over the handle area joint. My intentions with the boo flooring handle was for it to bend a bit. I didn't think about the support for the splice though.  When I repair it I will use a stronger wood but in a lam that is thin enough to bend a bit. Them I think I will wrap the handle over that.   Pat

Pat,

Clean your shop?  You shouldn't make me feel bad like that.  Cleaning my shop is a two-month process involving rebuilding cabinets, adding drying racks, installing windows, etc.  I'll have it really clean in a couple years.
