Wooden Cylinder Handles

The ice picks in the group have wooden handles made from long rods or dowels, which I refer to as cylinder. The majority of the picks in the first section fall into two general diameter sizes, 1) about 1.1" and 2) approximately 0.85". The handles of the picks in the Barrel section have a slight bulge near the mid-point, giving a barrel shape. Those in the third section have tapered handle while the last section the handles have flats on two or three sides.
