I have completed some tools and handles for my shop, from left to right on the first picture :
- Marking knife : I cut my old planer blades (DW735) and resharpened the blade. Then rough cut two pieces of maple left from a previous project. I’ve inserted two steel dowels in the original blade holes, epoxy everything and rasp/shape the handle to fit my hand. Finish is boiled linseed oil followed by wax.
- Scratch awl, I’ve started by mounting a steel rod in my cordless drill and used rasp and sandpaper to make a point. Then build a a handle with a lamination of 2 maple scraps. The handle was then manually shaped until it fit my hand. Finish is BLO and wax.
- Last one was a handle I made for a file I purchased and the big orange store. I’ve used a bold (countersunk head on one side and filed on the other one) to hold the file. Routed the shape of the file metal handle on one of the two cherry blank. The shaped the handle by hand. Same finish applied.
Next hand tool will probably be a wooden hand plane thanks to the inspiration from some fellow Lumberjock folks.
Thanks for watching.
