Looking for handles for that flogger you are dying to make? Go to a store that has a sports/bicycle section and check out the bicycle handle grips, some are too soft, but some, like BMX and specialty handles are firm enough to use. They already have the hole in the middle for you to use.
Wooden handles, go to a big box style hardware, do it yourself building store and look for coffee table legs. They usually come with a threaded bolt that you can add a washer, then the flogger falls, another washer and a nut tightened down, or take their threaded piece out, measure it & buy a lag bolt the same circumference but slightly longer. Slip a washer on the lag bolt, put the flogger falls on the bolt, another washer and then insert it into the threaded hole in the table leg. You can paint the leg first or stain it etc & let it dry before assembling the flogger. The legs cost $2-$4 each Canadian. Don't get the ones with the metal feet on them, make sure they are all wood, most have been lathe turned.
