A selfmade rustication tool
For rustic pipe finishes, one can use a variety of tools, such as a Dremel style power
tool, a drill bit, or a carving knife.
All the parts can be bought from a hardware store or a plumber's shop. You will need:
First, cut the heads off the nails. Hardened nails are, well, very hard, so a small
angle grinder may the tool of your choice.
Put a bunch of the sharpened nails into the pipe, The tips should be all flush. Fix the nails either by wegding with a few smaller nails or by welding the end.
The reducing socket only serves as a handle. You can also screw in a 1" blind plug to keep the nails fixed.
To work with this tool, push the tips into the wood and twist the tool. It may need some practise, but the result will be quite good looking.
