The very first things I turned on the lathe were some new handles for my files, honing rod, and marking gauge. I love the contrast between the cream sapwood and dark brown heartwood, and turning Texas ebony was very easy. All the files were finished in shellac and carnauba wax.
The marking gauge was made with an old Irwin spade bit that I ground down.
I used Gorilla glue (when necessary) to set the tools in the handles.
