Just a quick post on my latest experiment, that being making awls from bits of wood left over from other projects and old drill bits.
They are simple enough to make, just take an old drill bit, and cut a length off it, then sharpen one end to a fine point, then all you need is a wooden handle, as I have a lathe I've used it to make my handles, but you could just as easily make them by hand.
Here's the ones I've made so far -

Not much to them really, all three are made from scrap bits and pieces I had in my workshop, I recorded a video on how I made them, which you can watch on youtbe.
Thanks for reading / watching.
