    Philip Davies's Tools


    Here's a pair of joiner's draw ores, fashioned from reclaimed sharpening steels (blued), with homemade cherry (gleaned locally) handles.Drawbores-image.jpg

    I haven't used drawbores very often, but having got the material, and knowing that commercial drawbores fetch good money, I thought that I might as well do something simple with them.Drawbores-image.jpg

    I seem to have three and a half pairs. But I have since acquired several more steels.Drawbores-image.jpg

    Happy to accept bids from timber-framers as well as joiners!
