I made this seam ripper for my wife last night. Noticed a week ago she was using one from hobby lobby that had no handle on it at all and thought that was rather unsafe so i ordered this kit and blank from Wood-N-Whimsys. Everything came in the mail yesterday and I jumped on the lathe as soon as I could after supper. I was able to surprise her just before bed with this. Thankfully she loved it and ordered at least 2 more for her friends who sew for hobby as well.
This project was fun and i was able to put to use a few new toys i have been slowly buying over the last week. Learned that resin casted blanks are tougher to turn than i thought, but they take oops’s with the skew considerably better than wood. For practice i used the skew chisel on this exclusively.
