That greyness/light brown is just how wood looks when sanded. If you were to wet the wood in that state (or oil it) the deep actual colour reveals itself.

Some parts for a La Spaziale. Portafilter handle, tamping station, steam control with cap, portafilter basket holder for tamping outside of the portafilter (works as a tamper holder also) all in gloss Macassar Ebony and a Wenge holder for some Lyn Weber bean cellars.

Olive wood portafilter, steam, water, brew controls for an ECM espresso machine with a satin finish. Nice heavy grain in this olive.

1) Dave was a pleasure to work with.

2) The hand-feel of the hardwood is just unreal.

Ironwood burl lever, portafilter and steam control for a Cremina lever with a gloss finish and some Wenge oil finished for an Elektra Micro Casa a Leva. Problem is this time of year the sun is not up when I leave for work and long down when I get home. That leaves me using the flash on the camera which dulls the wood verses nice bright natural light, but they still look nice.

I've looked through a lot of these pages - beautiful work. I'm also a woodworker coffee fan and would love to make one of these myself. The lathe portion I understand - but how do you figure out the threading? Are you somehow reusing the same bolt from the original handle? Or are they standard sizes you buy separately?

Olive portafilter handles in a satin finish with M12 studs. Gorgeous grain and a little curl figure in the wood. They will fit most espresso machines. Person I turned them for decided they wanted a different shape so selling these. $130 for the pair and free shipping withing the US. Extra for international shipping. Listed in the Buy/Sell forum as well.
