Good concept, but not all that useful I like the concept, but drawing circles smaller that its max diameter are not practical. The holes are too small to get a large pencil, so the lead on my smaller pencils brake. You also cant get a pen head in, as the holes are too small.

Great Way to not waste your log. I’ve used a few time now, wish I had it a while ago.I like how it helps not only find center but also the best way to get the biggest bowl I can.Only reason I gave it a 4 and not a 5 is that It would be nice to have the lines on the marker a different color to see a little better while placing it on the wood./
