Here is the second batch of awls I just finished . I made them pose in their new stand that I will use at the Arts and Craft show tomorrow. They are sharp as needles so this way the points are protected. I made the stand out of one piece of maple plywood and experimented with an integral foot and it worked pretty well. I may use it for other displays, too.
The Awls are made from box elder, spalted beech, cherry, spalted maple and osage orange. Some are gifts but I’ll test the market at the craft show to see if they sell. They have brass ferrules and hardened drill rod shafts. Most have a Win. 30-30 shell in the back and one of the box elder ones has a Rem. 44 Mag shell in it. I only had one of them.
They are finished with clear lacquer.
