Nice job, cheers for posting Smiley
I've got a couple of old machetes which I might give a similar treatment. First step for me if to have a look at some different wood to see what I want to use for the handle. Got some plum, walnut and ash, so will sand a bit of each and see how the grain and colour looks.
