It was a great thing to participate in the latest tool swap. I had a lot of fun and received a very handy and nice looking marking knife and marking gauge from ShaneA.

I sent along the two items pictured here, A scratch awl and a woodworkers pencil. Both made from reclaimed Heart Pine barn wood I got from another woodworker in New York. I used ink transfer to put the intial on them and then used my woodburning pen to add a little character.

A few time all in all.

I wouldn’t have guessed those were made from pine, nice-looking wood. Your turning skills are great as well. The brass cap looks difficult to shape.

Thanks Allen, I wish I could take credit for the brass pieces but they were already formed. I made up the handle and polished them a bit.

The wood burning did add a lot of character. Nice work.

Very cool. The wood is something special.
