This tool making is getting to be quite fun. I decided to make an awl for a friend of mine. I had some left over scraps from the Mallet Swap and glued up a blank and turned this one for him

Nice work, Devon. I like the casing ferrule.

Thanks,

I wish I could claim ownership of the idea of using a cartridge casing for a ferule but I stole that from a youtube video. I think its a neat touch

That is one fine looking awl. The knob looks like it is just the right size to get a good grip without causing hand cramps.

I love it. That looks like a 45 casing for the ferrule. That is a great idea. May I borrow it?

cheers, Jim

That casing ferrule is genius. What kind of steel did you use?

I have no idea. Is some stuff I got from work that was over with our torch. I assume some sort of brazing rod. What I know is that it is steel and it is hard as hell.
