I did accomplish something today. I brought home a rusty piece of 3/8” square bar from the flea market Sunday. I had some osage orange (bois d’ arc) that a friend gave to me.
I roughed out the blank, sized it for a ferrule,then CA glued it on. I make it a tight fit so I can screw it on. A file will round it over. Then I drilled a 7/16” hole 3” deep. Turn it, burn it, polish it, part it off then CA glue in the metal.
I’m going to wait until something presents itself as a need for the profile to grind it. As for now, it’s a square flat scraper.
21” x 1 and 1/2”. Hut friction polish.
-- on Wednesday's I go shopping, and have buttered scones for tea...
