Every body has there own methods for marking or striking a line on there work. I wanted to try my hand at making such a simple tool. I had a large paddle bit that was willing to donate to my cause. All I needed to do was choose the style I wanted to make. There are a few different styles out there.
Then I looked at some older versions.
I picked this one.
I wanted it to be a pointed tip so I could make on the left or right side of my straight line. I wanted an awl for marking on end grain as well as with the grain.
What kind of marking tool do you use?
Please be careful. Some of the things I do are dangerous. It is not my fault if you get hurt. Use your brain, be safe.
