Just a little somethin somethin I gave my mother inlaw for Thanksgiving.
She tried it and loved it .

Solid Brass with a Maple & Walnut handle = Reminds me of Fudge Ripple ice cream…so I thought it would be a good combination for this project.

Great present. Love the wood combo. On this turning it really gives it a lot more charector the one piece would.

Nice design and finish also. I see why she loved it.

Keep it up.

Fine work, as always. I got to see this up close and personal Wed. before Thanksgiving. I could find no glue lines, and the finishing job is immaculate. Say, what flavor was the ice cream? Maple Walnut? LOL

Lovely use of the laminated blank. To get the pattern you have there, how did you organize the maple and walnut pieces for lamination?

Looks great. When I read the caption I was thinking I’d trade my mother-in-law for one of those too.
