I like making awls for some reason. Perhaps it goes back to the days when I only had one and could never find it when I needed it. Now I have them all over the shop and I’ve taken to giving them away. Sometimes to people who have little use for an awl. When urge strikes I just make them. This time I decided on a couple of bird cage awls. The steel is O1 tool steel. I hardened and tempered the tips. The handles are mesquite burl and stabilized spalted maple.
