Thanks fellow Lumberjocks Jim http://lumberjocks.com/projects/72960 and Dick http://lumberjocks.com/projects/55370 for their inspiration to make a nice version of this trick.(instead of just a nail nailed into a block of wood)
I made mine out of pine. I got good practice with the skew chisel, i kept getting really close to being finished and then getting a “catch” and having to turn it down some more, happened 3 or 4 times. It was good practice and i only had to start sanding with 150 grit. I used 2 1/2” nails because i was out of 3 1/2” nails, but it is easier to balance them with bigger nails.
