He,he, di je reuma i nemre ruka, može ova drvena. Dobra ideja, nemoj samo prenisko da ne zakvačiš rupu :-).

Looks very handy.

Ha! Pretty sneaky there, using a pencil sharpener to sharpen the points! Oh and that thing looks like you could start a mice (small) garden with it too.

That is a good scratcher, really nice.

Nice all wood version, Bambi! My thoughts went to a zen garden rake immediately, as well!

I sure could use it as I have a bad rash on my back but the doctor said NOT to scratch!
Still it would be nice to have one as good as yours!

Nice back scratcher bambi. Just the right size and very clever design. How many coats of Olive Oil and do you find that the Olive Oil penetrates the wood and is dry to the touch.

Well done bambi, you sound like me, just can’t quite reach those itchy spots like I used to :-)
