Tool Making

Made me some tools biatch!

Tips haven't been honed here

I prefer this shape over the two smaller ones with the rounded lip.. The large brass head on the big one also gives it some decent heft.

The olive wood little marking gauge was a gift. The brass headed carvers mallet was the first tool.  Followed by the bird cage awl. Most recently I made the thin kerf dovetail saw.  Can't get the steel here so it was imported from the UK. Even the bolts are hand made split nuts. Filled to 18 PPI and I hate setting saws I find that process very tedious.
