Bow Drill Bearing Blocks

Following this post that I made back in January of this year, i eventually got round to finishing off these blocks today.

As you can see from the picture, I've made two shallow depressions in the stones, that will provide a place for the top of the bow drill spindle to sit in, to begin with i use a little Tung Oil in the depressions and with use the spindle top polishes the depression and as a result the block becomes almost frictionless.
