I have been slowly getting into woodworking and decided I would start with a few small project to build my skill. So i looked in the normal places for projects and plans. I subscribe to Chris Schwarz webpage and often receive his emails about the things he is working on. One of his emails was about creating your own marking knife out of a drill bit.
I decided this seemed easy enough and was a pretty good skill builder. So with an old drill bit and some simple tools I set out to build a marking knife. A marking knife makes measuring and cutting wood cleaner and more accurate. So it will be a great addition to my growing inventory of tools. Enjoy
