Japanese Hammers need a new handle (update)

Remember this picture from the post on the new handles for my japanese hammers that I needed to make?

If you look at the hammer on the right and specifically the area where the hammer head meets the handle, you will see a space on both sides of the handle.  Not good.  It’s been bothering me since I made it, but the wedges I put in on the top kept it in nice and tight and it help up when I was using it.  But it still bugged me so I took the handle out and made a new one instead.

Unfortunately, the piece of cherry I used (a cut off from a board) wasn’t the best looking, actually it’s kinda ugly.

But it fits in the hammer head properly, so what do you think?

As  long as it works right?
