Here are a few of the oyster shuckers I’ve been working on. The blades are made from old saw blades and the handles are wood scraps from a woodworking shop. It is so much fun to take things from the “burn pile” and make something usable. I know the shape is not conventional, but I like it :)
The first and second are spalted elm. They were from the same piece of wood, just different parts of it.
The third picture is a piece of cherry with a pearl epoxied in a natural crack.
4th is black walnut
last two are locust, the last one has natural turquoise jasper gemstone pin tops (the actual pins are brass, I just was going for a different look….although, my husband says it is “girly looking”)
Thanks for looking :)
