I looked around the garden for some inspiration and came up with these handle designs, something I have been wanting to do and make for some time .
I used these on some back scratchers but other things come to mind where these will be used down the road .
All are made from cuttings so no great expense but a lot of fun making finished with beeswax only .

You always seem to find inspiration in everything.

Well done execution too.

Klaus, again with backscratchers! You’re the cure for the seven year itch my friend. Those are incredible handles but really anything you do is incredible. I’m just marveling at how much effort you put into just one handle. Fantastic.

-- Thanks for all the lessons!

I think nature is some of the best inspiration for designs, and you have a real talent for capturing it. A bouquet of back scratchers! :)
