Following the idea of ​​using small drill bit manually I did some more.
Even you can see that using a spade bit that had broken enough to see that outcome was.
Left satisfied with the work and add a few more tools.
The handle of the spade bit I did it by hand with a rasp and spokeshave (Algarrobo). The others are results of my first experience around a friend (guayobira and cedar).
That is, I was impressed with the work lathe and I have in mind to do several other experiments. But first I have to make some tools because my friend has nothing really usable.
Thanks for looking.

Very nice work. Most of us can’t make our own tools.

They look nice, but it seems that you need a lot of turnings to make a hole

Thanks for the feedback!
If Sergio, the idea is to use it for small jobs but also requires a good time and turns.
But these things I like manual and traditional because they serve to temper the patience and gives you time to think about many things while doing the job. I think even avoids psychologist!
