Hey guys! This was a fun little lathe project i made. I was tired of using nails to mark the centres of my holes before drilling so i decided to make my own awl!
I used African rosewood for the handle, a brass fitting that i then turned down on the lathe and a old masonry bit i had laying around the shop for the shaft! Im sure you noticed the flat spot on either side of the handle, this is so the awl itself wont roll off my bench.
Also i made a Youtube video on my making this awl so check that out!
