Our old nylon spatula not withstand the flame for long … lol.
We will be more careful with this new spatula incense … A fun project to do with scrap wood in no time. The finish is mineral oil.

Nuestra vieja espátula de nylon no resistió el fuego directo por mucho tiempo… lol.
Seremos más cuidadosos con esta nueva espátula de incienso… Un proyecto divertido para hacer con un sobrante en poco tiempo. La terminación es aceite mineral (vaselina).
Un proyecto del muy recomendable llibro de Phil Irons, Torneado en madera.

Very Nice. I really like the shape and proportions.

One question- How did you get the lanyard (string) to stay in the hole?

Hi Lew. Well, make a hole 1/8’’, put glue in the hole, put the two extremes of the string, and finally put a wedge of wood with glue. The string is of cotton, embedded on mineral oil, as the rest of the spatula.

Hola Lew. Bueno, hice un agujero de 1 / 8’’, puse pegamento en el agujero, puse los dos extremos de la cuerda, y finalmente, puse una cuña de madera con pegamento. La cuerda es de algodón, embebido en aceite mineral, como el resto de la espátula.
