Boring Tools and their Makers


 
  18th Century Estonian Breast Auger 2 of 2  

The chip carving design is repeated on the other side.

These augers were made from the area of a tree where two opposing
branches were growing. The two handles were formed from the branches.

The auger rapidly bored a hole in my auger-testing tree stump.
