Hello fellows,at this time one more screwdriver for use at handplanes cap iron screw.Another friend ask me to do one more.
At this one I decided to add some charm with a curved groove.I have a Mortise Pal and I used it for make a groove in a precise and quickly way.

See the pictures below.

The idea of shape started here.

I choose a Brazilian good quality wood.First I did the groove before to cut circular final shape.

I don’t have a lathe and I was thinking in make the round groove using a small router e a round bit.
I make this recess using a Forstener bit for starts the cut from here.But I thought this cut unsafe and gave up.

I choose these tools to make the round groove.

At back to suport I used a shelf pin (5mm) like this

After a rough cut using a microplane rasp I made one pass using the cylinder burr rasp/bit and after used a pencil for find possible high spots (remember a round cut from hole saw is not 100% perfect round).I rasped high spots before a new pass.The back pin supports the piece.

Remember do not go so far.The blades I made using a stainless steel 1 1/4”x1/8” flat bar.Iglued the blades with epoxy glue.

Thanks for attention!
