Project Information

Continuing the tool theme, I made this recently after thinking about the design for a long time. I've done several previously that were modified cheap-o steel compasses, all with my innovation of a chopstick that can be sharpened with a pencil sharpener, or shaped. Mahogany, brass tubing cut & shaped, brass pins, shellac. You can clearly see the over-drilled hole of shame- a permanent reproach.

That looks slick. I like the idea, and may have to tackle one of these. Sounds like you are addicted to the tool making. I find it fun and rewarding.

Nice design! Is it a friction fit that holds the pencil and chopstick in place?
