I’m just kicking the last of the flu. I had about 3 weeks of laying around feeling lousy. Only 3 or 4 days of really sick, the rest of the time I just wanted to watch the tube and drink tea.

I don’t have a real project going, but I just wanted to do something. A couple of pencil pots and another spurtle.
The walnut pot and the ash spurtle are from firewood I was given. The cherry pot is from a kiln dried scrap.

Measure once, cut twice or something like that. I didn’t measure anything, but the cherry is about 4” tall.

Dealing with the chest and head thing myself. Hope you are 100% well very soon , Hairy : )

I like your turnings and the way you captured the curly grain and the rays in each piece.
I guess I’m going to have to Google the “spurtle” though : )

Your body may have been sick, but your creative side was working just fine !

Very nice :-)

Hope you’re feeling better….

A “spurtle” is a cross between a “spork” (which is—itself—a cross between a spoon and a fork) and a turtle. Hope that helps :-P

Thanks!
A spurtle is a stick to stir food.I like making my own cooking tools. Mine are not really traditional, I put my own spin on them.
