Six Awls

Furnished content.
(from Lumberjocks.com)


Six AwlsI made some more awl for stock for future shows. These are made from Osage Orange, with hardened tool steel points and solid brass ferrules. They each have a S&W 500 Mag cartridge embedded in the back ( Compliments of LJ Hilbillyshooter _ Thanks Gunny!). Two of them had chipped out when I had them turned to final dimension and was rounding the back so I added some contrasting wood to finish them. I was going to use walnut but when I walked in the wood storage room, this piece of Jarrah said Pick Me.. Pick Me, so that is what I used for them. They are 1 1/2” diameter and 4 1/2” long and finished with EEE and Shellawax.cheers, Jim
