Spurtling season will soon be upon us. To my horror, I realized I was un – spurtled.
This is no time to panic. I calmly went to the lathe, chucked up a convenient 1 and 3/4” square x 18 ” piece of mahogany.
In the spurtling community, it’s go big or go home.
With a world of options available to me, I decided to fall back on my tired and worn decorative treatments. It’s better to be safe than sorry at a time like this.
Hexagonal handle, twisted shaft, divided by a bead. Finished length 16” x 1 and 5/8 tapering to 7/8”
As far as finish, I decided to go old school. Real old. No finish. People have been stirring food with sticks since before recorded history.
