So I bought a wood lathe and have been trying my hand at turning wood and acrylic projects.
Since we are Cigar prop, I figured I’d make some cool cigar stuff. We now have cigar punches and nub tools made from high-grade acrylic.
These cigar punches feature an all wood body that was turned from actual tobacco sticks used to hang cigar tobacco. You can see the wood has weathered a lot over the years. The worm and bug holes and cracks have all been sealed under 12 coats of a protectant so they should last a lifetime now.
The bodies are chrome stainless steel hardware.
The keychain end unscrews to reveal a 7mm punch.
The punch tools are 3″ long not included the keychain and weigh around 1.5 oz.
Since these are a new product and I am just learning, to keep the price down, these do not come in a fancy box or anything. As I progress and get better and finalize a cool design, then comes the packaging.
