I am in the process of making a simple Y topper for a thumb stick from a hardwood paling.

Took the pattern off a computer font, enlarged it, cut it out and sanded to my liking. It's a good place to start if you don't have any natural

timber forks

Here is the result of my first effort using Y font from MSWord.

It's still unfinished of course. I learned a lot from just this one effort.

I forgot to allow for a thumb space for example

I'm not up to inlays yet! Was just thinking about horn spacer and tips and just oiling up the timber to keep the

nice orangey colour. Getting back to tools though I'd like to get a spindle sander for finer shaping.

I have own version using Haron drum rotary sander which I plug into my drill press. I am also making

thinner drums ton get into tighter spaces (say on a lyre shape) by gluing sandpaper to timber cylinders I have cut.

They also go into the press.
