Interesting idea, a quick google search tells me that its becoming more common to treat wood with some kind of borate. Maybe I'll run some tests on my now defunct hoe handle. Don't hold your breath though = )

Be careful with borax. Read first what is said in wikipedia about borax toxicity before use it.

Can't figure how you can burn a handle? Mine are homemade and all have broom handles from "bunnings". Good one mostly Coates brand. No charring just smoke and ash stained. One tool that has a metal handle thats a poker of sorts made from a metal curtain rod with a tent peg welded in the end.... paints still intact one that too.

Trying to position a log at the back of the fire. The 10 seconds or so that it takes to do that is more than enough to catch my handle. Or doming a pizza.

find attach photo of poker and rake battered and tattered but unburnt
Heat resistant wood for tools-poker-pusher.jpg
Have to admit now that I think about it that I burn't mk 1 oven brush to a cinder by leaving it in the entrance for to long
Try the poker its easy to make just a tent peg attached to the end of a metal curtain rod ( not my idea got it off the forum)

Regards Dave

pretty sure most cheapo wooden handles in Bunnings are some kind of Australian hard wood they tend to be light coloured and tight grained probably not Vis ash or Tassie oak they might be black butt or turpentine (you would see the wavy grain) or silver top ash o r spotted gum
