Were the straps put around the wood hot or cold? Seems like it would be too lose if done cold, but you would burn the handle if hot (even if pre-soaked)

i heated up the steel(not red hot) then hammered the straps around the handle. i then drilled the holes for the rivets and heated up the rivets red hot and hammered them into place. the tricky part was keeping the straps tight against the blade while i hammed the rivets into place. ive been using it to cut kindling for the wood stove and its still holding tight.
