How is this done?  These are very even to have been done free hand.

Thanks

I said that.

So, just for the record: the fact that it does work still should not be taken as definitive proof that you are not crazy.

I think I get it.  A forked cutter.

The bits look like a modified version of these:

The center point is shorter and the spur is longer, with the center point still a bit longer than the spur.  And you won't need the flat cutting part for the circle and dot.  If you score an old one (these are a 17th-early 19th century pattern) and cut off the flat, you can use them to make center-hole bone button blanks as well.
