After seeing Mafe's post, it reminded me of the muddler I made for a friend.
After being invited to a cocktail/dinner party, we decided to bring a home made gift with us. I knew a muddler would be perfect as he likes to make muddled drinks, but I thought how can I make one with out a lathe???

Tools used:
Table saw – to cut the blank
Band saw – to shape it
Router – to round over the edges
and an edge and flap sander to finish it.

It’s made from port orford cedar and while I put a coat of mineral oil on it, it will never need a finish.

Eric nice work brother. You have time to make other things other than the big order right now? Hope all is well, I’ll call you when I get over this call and will get together.

Haha, now that you mention it David, I do have a stray cat in my yard I need to get rid of….

Ken, no I don’t HAVE the time, just make myself take breaks every now and again ;) Besides, this took me a whopping 15 or 20 minutes to make! Very easy…

Thanks guys

And here I have been muddling along all these years without knowing there is a specialized tool for it (I learned that from Mafe) ! I still learn something new every day. Nicely done little project and a great gift item for that special bartender.

I didn’t know what a muddler was ether, but after seeing Mafe’s post, I could see it was for making drinks for the ladies.
