Very nice work. What hollowing tools did you use on these? I really like both of them. I have made some minitures if you check out my projects section. Keep up the great work and thanks for sharing.

Well, Flick My Bic!! At first i thought that was an extra big lighter. Then I reread the side ;-)) Great job!! I can’t believe they are relly that small.

superb job

i was going to ask something silly about the size of the lighter but topamax beat me to it

i cant even comprehend the dexterity required to use the tools on a job this small never mind doing it

thanks for showing

Fantastic turnings. See, EVERY piece of scrap is still useful! haha Very delicate work. Would also like to know what tools you used to hollow these. I have an 3.16 allen wrench I have made into a small hollowing tool. Worked good for this.

Keep up the inspiring work.

thanks for all the great feedback guys. i have used allen wrenchs to make small hollowing tools but now i use a set of elections probes. they are really small and hold a good edge after sharping. have a great day guys.

Where ever did you find that massive novely lighter?
wow – great tool control, and more motivation to not throw any scrap away!
