what you showed looked good as handles as long a you realize that you are going to need a pipe cutter and threader... which are tools only plumbers really own... unless you are buying you pipes in standard sizes pre-threaded which will limit you ability to customize size/weight of the locks.

just so you know...
I'm also going to dick around with trying to make cemment clubbells and stone balls soon...
I'll post up on how that works out
a note I should also make is that I used type S mortar for the cemment which can be dyed grey or terracotta for about $1 a weight.
