    In this video I'm showing the small scale production aspect of woodturning by making a dozen ferro rods handles.
    A friend asked if I could make him a custom one and so I discovered there is quite a demand for these things in the outdoors community in my country.
    So I ordered a bunch of ferrocerium rods and started making the first batch of twelve. The resulting video might be boring for most viewers but it shows some ways you can optimize mass production on the wood lathe.
    Some of them will be sold locally and some will be rewards for Patreon.

This was a great project with super results. Thanks for sharing. Do you by chance still have a link or the sellers name on ebay for the 8mm x 10cm rods? That seems the perfect size for the project but every rod I'm finding is 3" or less (seems too short), or 5" or more (seems too long). Thanks again for sharing.

It's an interesting thought experiment to think about how you would optimize production. If you cut all the blanks the same size, then that would open up some optimizations. You could use a square collet to hold the block then drill on a lathe. Since all blocks are the same size, you could create a jig for use on the table saw that would allow you to quickly hog out some of the material on multiple pieces and make them all identical. That might help save some passes on the lathe. Probably wouldn't save much time for 12 pieces, but if you were to make hundreds or thousands the time savings would add up.

It's really unfortunate you are now using a lot of sped up footage in your editing, I get it is useful because it lets you cramp in more footage in less time, but it really hurts the relaxing aspect of the video. I honestly subscribed solely because in the past you didn't use this tool too much, which set you apart from most youtube artisans who in my opinion abuse this editing technique. Please reconsider preserving a more calm and relaxing editing style. Your work is great but for me it's the editing is just as important.

That's just my personal opinion, but I would rather have less footage at regular speed than more footage compressed. If you don't want to lose any footage in editing, maybe split the videos into shorter parts?

I'm sorry you don't like this style, I'd like to make longer videos and it would be easier for me to edit them, but I had a lot of complains whenever I passed the 10-12 minute mark, saying that I make the videos longer and boring on purpose, to generate more ad views.

I made another handle for it, it's the one on the right in the final picture. I can't tell exactly how long it took since I waste a lot of time filming, took me 2-3 days total. So I guess actual work was around 6-8 hours.

I'm really sorry about the mishap with the burl, but I can't say I'm surprised. As a knife maker, I've had more than my share of heartbreak with that "hard as iron" wood. I'm not impressed with the Zebrawood. I've used tons of it, and eventually it gets boring. Good job though. Stoney

Where I live zebra wood is quite exotic, they were the first to sell. My favorite wood by far is olive, but I only have an old olive cutting board to use as stock so this resulted in quite thin handles.
