Finally had some spare time!

A friend from the MDWW in Salisbury, MD gifted me a glued-up turning blank and the hardware to create this scribe.

Thanks, Ed, hope you like it!!

The handle is purple heart and maple glued up in the same fashion as a Celtic Knot rolling pin. The scribe shaft is created from a 3/16” drill bit and the ferrule is a brass compression fitting shaped after installation. Finished with several applications of rattle can lacquer.

This will have a special place on my workbench.

After turning this, I wasn’t sure if the correct name should be an AWE or a SCRIBE. The handle shape made me think Scribe but the original intent was for an Awe.

Smitty- Thanks! The purple heart and maple sure made it pretty.

Charles- Thank You!

Hoss- Thanks! The crisscross inlays really create interesting patterns when turned.

Ed- Thank You so much for the “kit”- glad you approve! Sorry it took so long to be able to turn it. Sometimes life gets in the way of our enjoyment.

Brian- Thanks!

Karson- Thank You! Stop in the next time you’re up this way.

Oldrivers- Thanks!

Jim- Thank You! It shares a spot with another special awe :^).

Mads- Thanks! Coming from you, the “King of Shop Made Tools”, that means so much.
