Here are the first four of the steam bent back scratchers ,handles are on and the teeth cut all ready to go and all spoken for .



The scratchers are simply cut and shaped and walnut and some Asian wood from the cut off bin for the handles with some bling added .
The addition of the handles with a bit of shaping and the leaving the shaft straight was the big hit ,they work much better .
I have the next batch in the steamer as there are more requests and they all will be different handles .
Hope you enjoy them because I have lots of fun making them .
Here is the bending video link

I’ve been waiting to see your finished back scratchers Kiefer. They all look top notch quality made! Your method of bending wood is a huge success! If I had to choose a favorite I would say picture #2. But I think they all look great!
Nice work Kiefer and thanks for sharing your ideas.

They really turned out nice and I really enjoyed the video. Thanks for making it. Do you cut the teeth before or after you bend the wood?

Klaus…...very Kool! How about instead of calling them teeth, call ‘em fingers….better to scratch with.

My back stopped itching just from looking at them. I really like the way you design each handle. They all have their own personality. You always seem to have an edge on building a unique style. Thanks for the video also, I may use it.
