Making a Draw Knife from an Old Rusty Metal File

I’m making a drawknife from an old file that I found on the scrap yard. After Annealing the file I forged it into the desired shape and bent the thangs to receive the handles that I’ve turned from beech firewood. After the steel has cooled down slowly ive burned the handles to get a perfect fit. For the hardening process, I heated the steel to a non-magnetic state and quenched the edge in pre-warmed vegetable oil. After the hardening was done I tempered the edge to a dark straw color. Afterwards the handles were glued on with two-part epoxy and additional copper ferrules. The handles were coated with boiled linseed oil.

Turning a Simple Carvers Mallet from Spalted Beech

This time I’m making a carvers mallet from spalted beech wood on the lathe. The simple shape is ideal when working with different carving chisels while it is also a great exercise in woodturning. The total length is about 10″ (250mm) and the head is 3″ (75mm) wide on the largest part. I used Boiled linseed oil for a finish as i do on all my wooden tools.
