The Checker Madness Awl
Furnished content.

The Checker Madness AwlThis awl is part of my #100AwlGiveAway contest that I started a few weeks ago. I paired walnut, cherry and redheart with a 6D nail. Both the cherry and walnut were cut into 1/8th inch strips, glued together, sliced again and then glued front to back to create a checkerboard pattern.This is 3rd in my series. With each awl, I make 10. By the end of this in roughly 7 weeks, I will have made 100 awls altogether (all though, honestly, I'm making 2 extra of each…so I should have about 120).If you're interested in making an awl and showing it off at the end of my video (along with your name/state), check out my webpage. I'd love to give each of these away…but you don't have to accept one of my awls to be a part of this challenge, and you don't need a lathe either, as I've shown several ways to make them without that spinning beast.It's been a lot of fun and a challenge to myself as I try to one up the awls each week.The video showing how I made this one: contest page (as well as a step by step page to making one), if you want to learn more:
