DIY Hollow Form Tools From Old ‘Alan’ Wrenches

Hollowing ToolsMay also be viewed on YouTube and Vimeo — But best right here!

I’m planning to create a small hollow form for my local club’s current challenge. However, my current tools are large and would require a larger hole than I want to leave.

So, I’m grinding two old Allen wrenches to provide one straight scraper and one bent scraper.

Then I’m making a handle for each: one from fig; one from elm.

Next week, I’ll create the hollow form.

Good turning.
