Inspired by the latest work of MAFE, I decided to give shape to an idea I had for a while to do something to preserve small wicks.
This is the first attempt and I am very comfortable to use.
The finish is tung oil.
Thanks for looking.

That is a nice tool and you did a good job on it. Looks comfortable to the hand and fingers.

@joe,

Most countries list dates as: Day-Month-Year (i.e. the digits arranged from least to most significant), unlike MM/DD/YYYY used in the US. (I always thought the US way was backwards, but that’s the computer scientist in me.)

So it’s Jan 2, 2012.

Cool little hand drill.
Wonderful finish also.
You have to explain the use, please.
Best thoughts,

Thanks for coments!!!
Don: I think I got lost in the translation and say wick when wont say drill bit. With electric drill small drill bit usually break by its own weight.
Yes Joein10asee, is DD,MM,YYYY. So here is used. This globalized world out there confuses us with some small details.
Mad, that is intended for use as an awl more than anything. Just do not open the timber but a hole. I think yours are for use with both hands and thereby making faster movement … is so? As if we wanted to make fire by rubbing two branches, in a manner to explain it.

I know where this would come in handy. In a recent project I needed to make pilot holes in a spot too tight for my drill. I settled on a dremel with a bit but it was still tight, but worked. This would have solved my problem nicely! Sometimes home made tools are the most effective.

Have your say...
