Hi everyone! As a part of a maker challenge from an online market I decided to make this homemade awl for their workshop. I’ve made it from a small branch of bog oak and a twisted screwdriver, using mainly my wood lathe. This is my first time with a multi-scraper. It definitely don’t replace at all my turning gouges and scrapers but it’s an easy start tool for those who want to approach to woodturning. I also use the angle grinder for shaping metal while it’s attached to the lathe (I definitely don’t recommend you to do this).

I hope you enjoy this project. Leave your comments and questions. I’ll be pleased to answer all of them.

Nice work. Enjoyed the video, gave me several ideas to improve how I make some of my own tools.

Thanks for posting!

Like the idea of the cap, except my favorite Awl from Kiefer never leaves the work bench?

Hi! I’m glad it became useful.

Hi Andre. The cap was intended to protect it during the shipping (making it less harmful) because I’ve to send to people of manomano.
