It’s been a while since I have posted a project, huh?
After building my squirrel picnic area, I was replacing an old cob with a fresh one.
Then I got an itch between my shoulder blades and used the old cob to scratch it.
It felt great! Fantastic even!
Hence, here is my latest creation. They are so easy to make. Just any scrap wood laying around for the handles
(Mine are 5”) and a piece of 3/8” dowel (about 18”) and a dried corn cob (about 4”).
Total length is about 24”
No real precision involved either. Just a hole in the handle and cob a little glue insert the dowel and you are done!
I got the dried corn in the garden dept of Lowes and about $6-$7 for a whole bag. If you don’t have squirrels to eat the corn off you can just scrap it off.
After you buy the corn it basically is the cost of a dowel for each one.
This is a batch I made for my family.
They make great useful gifts. Christmas is getting close!
If they are too rough for you, then you can just sand them a little smoother.
