Oh nuts

Postby Dalboy » 02 Oct 2019, 19:05

Sat in a draw in the workshop I have a tap and die set for wood which I brought to make something a while ago but it never got used.
So I thought that I needed to at least have a go at using it so a simple nutcracker was in order, made from apple for the main body and screw and Oak for the handle.

You beat me to it Derek. I am sure yours are more elegant than mine will be.
cheers
