One of things I absolutely hate to do in my work is to waste anything. Even if it only costs 2$ to purchase the materials I feel as though throwing away something that can be repurposed is like throwing that 2$ in the trash.

To a certain extent there are things that need to be tossed, but when you can make something like a tool then I think it’s worth the while to take the time to make something useful out of that waste.

Thus we have this little tool. I had wanted a scribe since I’m always looking for more measuring tools (you can never have too many measuring tools). I’ve found a scribe to be very useful in marking out woods with darker grain or softwood, I have a tendency to smear my hands all over the work while I’m at it so I tend to smudge up any pencil lines/measurements I might’ve made. The scribe keeps that from happening for me (ymmv).

There’s really not a whole lot to it, just a sharpened point of stainless steel set into a maple handle. The maple is scrap left over from my little luthier’s knife project. The metal is just some leftover stock from a previous project, just putting it all to good use!

Thanks for reading/watching!
