Stone Drill Bit
Drills are an important part of any builder’s toolkit. Before metal, stone drill bits were chipped from hard, fine grained stone, attached to a shaft, and spun very fast to drill a hole. Holes were drilled in many sizes and for many purposes, such as lashing together bentwood cedar boxes. The tip of the white stone drill bit pictured here, from Qithyil, measured a millimeter in diameter.
