I designed this tool (in fact a bit to mount on a drill or a router) especially for kuksa carving, but I can imagine it can be a great help for anyone who wants to drill big smooth holes in wood.

All you need:
- drill
- angle cutter
- heavy duty clock drill
- piton or bolt
- a few screws
- a piece or carbon steel

Step 1: Cut It Out

Never throw anything! Years ago I found on a flee market an old machete, handforged and perfect to 'turn into something else one time': perfect for this project.

Clean it up, and drill a disc out of it with a clock drill. Don't forget to lubrificate while drilling.

Step 2: Pitonize

Cut a groove in the top of a heavy diameter bolt.
Insert the disc, drill two holes in both (side to side) & smash a few autoscrewing screws or pitons in it to uniform the whole.

Dirty but effective!

Step 3: Sharpen & Ready to Go!

Sharpen the edges - on the counterclockwiseside, of course - and mount the device on a router or column drill.

Power ON, highspeed & go!

NO NEED TO TELL THAT THIS DEVICE IS AS DANGEROUS AS HELL.
WEAR GLOVES & HOLD THE PIECE WITH BOTH HANDS, IT DOESN'T MAKE A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WOOD & MEAT.

Enjoy this tool.
Woodcarving will never be the same...
<p>YES COOL</p><p>http://www.roblesjy.com</p>
<p>OK I would rather use a kutzall tool in stead of this on...just a bit safer to use....</p>

Thanx mate!
This is awesome! I love the kuksa I'ble as well! <br> <br>
Thanxxx!!!
Very useful tool, good design, but you should press the piece in a vicegrip or similar, in order to decrease the risk.<br> <br> Please look this: <a href="https://www.instructables.com/id/Dont-be-stupid-as-me-no-sea-estpido-como-yo/" rel="nofollow">https://www.instructables.com/id/Dont-be-stupid-as-me-no-sea-estpido-como-yo/</a>
I was hoping you would see this tool O. It looks so dangerous.
Nina, I was in holidays in Cuba for 2 weeks. Still I have not entered in my workshop after return.
Let's say that I tried to limit the risk: by making a sturdy tool, by fixing it the strong as I could in the drill and by holding the piece with both hands. Pressing it in a vicegrip would - in my case - have been unhandy because the diameter of the tool was much smaller than the hole I would carve. I needed to 'walse' the kuksa to carve it correctly. <br>Believe me, handled intelligently this tool is safe. <br>How could it be more safe? By drilling a bigger disc for the device, for example, with exactly the inner diam of the kuksa. <br>Just an idea...
