new tools I made

I'm doing a tool making demo for a flat woodworking club and decided to make a few more tools for my shop. I made a marking knife, a scribe, and a carving gouge. The woods are Cherry, Bacote, Wenge. The ferrule's are pipe adaptors. 1/2" thread to 3/8" copper. The brass turns easily with HSS wood turning tools. I use the same techniques as I would when cutting with wood. the blades are either drill rod or high carbon tool steel.

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.

Wow, those tools look great and comfortable to use, good work!

I want to die quietly in my sleep like my grandfather, not screaming in terror like the passengers of his car.

I really like the general shape of the cntr one.......a sort of reverse taper.They all have a very nice,well thought out look to them,BW

Those who say it cannot be done shouldn't interrupt the people doing it.

Very very nice!... And I was proud of this scribing knife, lol... I think it's time I got a lathe already!

Beautiful tools, like something you'd see in an antique tools book. I'd buy that awl or scriber in a hearbeat. The brass looks great.

A pipe adaptor is a brass fitting that adapts one size pipe to another. In this instance it is for adapting 1/2" threaded pipe to 3/8" sweat on pipe. Usually I think Threaded PVC to copper pipe.

Did you embellish those pipe adapters or do they come that fancy looking?

The Brass pipe adaptors are embellished. that's part of the reason I use these. they have more metal so you have more options of how to shape them. they are kind of this shape with a hex shape at the top. I turn that away and then reshape the outside slightly. then I added the little coves or lines.
I have also used just regular compression nuts but after you turn away the hex shape there isn't much metal left in those so you can't reshape them.
Just go to Lowes and wander around the plumbing dept. You can find all kinds of good ferule material.
