These are two smaller size grooving tools that I might need for a future project. One is .125” and the other one is .075” One handle is maple burl and the other one is madrone, that branch shown in the third photo is from the madrone woods where we were picking up limbs.The bark gave it away. The handles are 5 1/2” long and the shafts are 5” long with 3/16” lathe tool bits welded in the end and then ground to width. They are relieved on the sides so they don’t bind when cutting grooves.
They are finished with EEE and Shine Juice per Captain Eddie’s formula.
The last shot shows the full set with the handle on the third one made from Pistachio.
