‘How to’ Table by MeMyself&I
My first mortise and tenons! Thanks for the lesson Paul. The table is made out of pine, and I still need to apply a finish. I cheated on the bevel of the table top and used a table saw… Sorry Paul
Square Awl by Dave Robbie
I got the idea after seeing an awl that Paul had. I made the handle out of a 1.25″ dowel that I planed to 8 sides then turned on my mini lathe. I made the ferrule from a brass fitting and the square awl from a 3.5″ hardened masonry nail. I first annealed the nail, then shaped it with files and sandpaper. I then hardened in with oil quenching and then tempered at 400F in a toaster oven. To get the name like Paul had on his handle, I just laser printed out my name in mirror image then placed on a wetted side with clear waterbased polyurethane. I let dry then put water on it and lightly rubbed the paper off leaving the name.
