This is a tool that I use for almost every project that I hand build. It is in my top 5 for most useful tools!! It is incredibly handy to make the top of your forms even. I use most often in conjunction with a cheese cutter or a pin tool.
This was designed and fabricated with the help of Troy Bungart, an amazing tool maker. The Sunshine stick has notches for your cheese cutter or pin tool to rest and a handy ruler on one side to give additional guidance. 12 inches long, 1 inch wide and 3/4 inches thick. It is very easy to handle and comfortable to use (with a little practice:).
