Looks very nice, did you machine your own tools and what sort of putty were you using?

Thanks:D The material is some urethane resin and I make a lot of my own tools from broken files, that is one of them (it's name is now officially Harry)
even crappy files have the potential to be some of the best tools and I never let damaged ones be thrown away.

I was just kidding, I only name the really good ones....
It fosters a healthy spirit of competition amongst my other tools to not be crappy....I think it has even driven some to sharpen themselves overnight ... you know...to keep their edge.
(yes- I need to be smacked for that one)

But grasshopper... that is the type of tool you hold up as an example to the other tools and bang on with a rock to let them know there are dire consequences for repeated failure.
The bad eggs.
We try to not speak of them too often.

That is amazing! What is the material you are using called?

It is a urethane resin. If a piece is too fragile in its original material I like to do my finishing in a more durable material like that to avoid breakage.
