I made a little knife and used 1/2" copper pipe for the ferrule. Cleaned
it up with the lathe, trued it round inside and out, and then glued it
on. I've got a lot to learn about the process, but for a first attempt
it worked pretty well.
When using copper pipe, turn the wood to be a VERY tight fit in the
copper - like an interference fit - and then heat the copper to about
350F. Copper expands linearly almost 1 thou per 100 degrees F, so 350F
will expand the diameter of the ring about 1 thou
