Project Information

As part of my 100 Awl Contest, where I encourage others to make awls out of their best scrap woods, I came up with this awl, which I call the "Empty Spaces" awl. I used jatoba, maple and ebony (and a divine 6D nail) to create it. I used my table saw box joint jig to create the spaces in the maple pieces and then layered the hole and space needed to add a nail.

Finally, I used a pvc pipe with a piece of sandpaper attached to it to give it a rounded inner look.

!

I'm always looking for new participants in this contest as I have a lot of awls I'd love to give away, so if you're interested, come check out how to enter: https://makethingswithrob.com/stubby_awl/

To see how I made this particular awl (it's about 5 minutes in all), click here:
