The wooden handle on my garden trowel has partially rotted away. Not having
a lathe or anything I have just bought a very cheap trowel which does though
have quite a nice wooden handle that I want to use .
The metal part of the new trowel will just not come out of the handle,
however hard I pull.
My idea now is to put the whole thing in the freezer and then lower the
into some hot water to take advantage of the expansion
difference between the metal part being cold and the wooden handle being
But will freezing the wooden handle damage the wood please? Or grateful for
any other ideas, thanks.
