To come back on my comment above, I was more talking of something to be punched, what you describe is more for drilling, I will give it a try.
I have a couple of questions, what's the use of your awl with the oval tip ground at an angle ? (second photo in the first post)
Where do you source the nice rings you used on the first and on the egg handle one from ?
It reminds me some similar shaped tools I have made, but for wood turning, I will post them.
