My kind of backscratcher. It does a good job. I wanted to keep it thick to keep it sturdy.
Hexagonal at the handle, round in the middle, flat oval at the wrist.
Multi – axis turning, then shaped.
Butternut 23” x 2” Watco Danish oil finish.

That is a nice one. I like the color.
fun weekend project
I’m admiring the bench too.

here’s a scratcher I made for my wife … a couple years back. She keeps it on the mantel and uses it daily.

I’ve got a woman to scratch my back. But I could use the bench. Looks great can you post more pictures?

I picked this up at auction a few years back. I added the wheels and a 2×4 around the back side. It was already setup for chisels and gouges to be put into holes, I took it a little farther.

I love old workbenches. This one is my favorite. Cast iron legs, solid as a rock.It had a beat up metal top when I got it.

I got rid rid of the fishtails for some shorty turnouts. Put these inside. It sounds and runs real good.
