Laura´s Marking Knife

This week i made a Marking Knife from Olive Wood and a broken Sawblade.
It´s a present for April Wilkerson :)

I didn´t harden the steel because this Knife will only be used to mark wood...i don´t think it´s necessary to harden it.

This Knife is a prensent for my friend April...i will meet her in a couple days in New York! woohoo!

marking knife turners want to have great deals of devices. While most professional turners have 3 or four devices that they make use of regularly, there has the tendency to be great deals of various devices hanging all around the shop. What surprises lots of turners is the simplicity in making most of their own tools.

Turners already have a lot of the skills should make a great deal of turning devices. They amount to having the ability to drill a hole, adhesive 2 things together and turn a deal with out of timber. Undoubtedly the last knows to the majority of timber turners and also quickly done by the remainder. The drilling and also gluing are familiar in timber as well as moving the abilities to steel is straightforward. A brand-new ability to find out is tapping a screw opening in steel yet truly it is bit different compared to driving a screw right into a piece of timber after a pilot hole is drilled. Some tools need a little of smithing yet these are easily prevented or can be used up for the sheer fun of doing so.

The tools for the work are the part of nearly every timber turner. The mill for sharpening timber turning tools will be used to form as well as hone the new ones.

Take a hollowing device. A 10 inch long piece of one fifty percent inch diameter cool rolled steel is cut to size. In one end a one and also a fifty percent inch opening is drilled five sixteenths in diameter. Intersecting it at ninety levels, one half inch from the exact same end, a three sixteenths diameter opening is drilled form the side. This is tapped to take a one quarter inch set screw. To do this the tap is screwed in a half turn, backed out a quarter turn, returned a half turn, backed out a quarter turn and more up until the hole is tapped.

The standard metal job is completed so currently a twelve inch deal with is looked to fit the turner's hand as well as a hole one fifty percent inch in size and also two inches deep is drilled in the long run to fit the brand-new shaft. Super glue will hold the shaft in position quickly or epoxy can be used for the even more person.

A 3 sixteenths square reducing little bit as used by the steel lathe individuals is put into the hole ultimately of the shaft and also held there by a set screw. The set screw avoids the square little bit from kipping down the round hole. Now|Currently it is sharpened to about seventy degrees and somewhat rounded and a hollowing tool is born.

It could rapidly be seen that all timber turning devices are variations on manage, shaft and cutting tip. With the convenience of obtaining good steel consisting of broadband steel reducing bits as well as the basic skills of timber turners, it can be seen that numerous tools can be quickly made and changed to match the job at hand.


Wood turners like to have whole lots of tools. While the majority of professional turners have 3 or four devices that they utilize all the time, there often tends to be whole lots of various devices hanging all around the shop. What surprises lots of turners is the simplicity in making several of their own devices.

The tools for the work are the part of virtually every wood turner. The mill for sharpening wood transforming devices will be utilized to form as well as hone the new ones.
