This is a little scratch awl I made from some 3/16” steel rod from the BORG and a scrap of zebra wood and a gas fitting. First I ground a point on the rod then I hardened and tempered it. Then I turned the handle and added the gas fitting. I got a little help from fellow lumberjocks about how to remove the wrench lugs on the gas fitting on the lathe. Then I put the steel point in the handle w/ some epoxy and polished it all up. Looks and works great. I am very much a newbie woodturner and this is my first tool handle.
