Let me start out by saying that I know very little about woodworking.  

I turned the wood first to just slightly bigger than the finished grip.  I then added the cork and shaped.  I was concerned the transition from cork to wood might not be clean because of the difference in hardness when sanding.  Was afraid I would remove too much cork and not enough wood.   This was the first one I tried, but may get some cheap wood and try the other route.  Again, this is what worked for me.  

Thanks again for the kind words.

Thank you kind sir! I'm still relatively new at this, but getting better each build. This is the first wood/ cork handle I've turned and am pretty pleased with it. Thanks again.

Thank you all for the kind words. Do you all think this rod is saleable? Open to criticism also. Just trying to get better.
