Had a good day playing around and cleaning the shop .
Wanted the grandsons to help and thought this may be a fun and quick project that they would enjoy making .
Everybody needs a back scratcher .
Cut up some birch and planed it to about 3/16” and soaked it in hot water for about an hour .
Got out the heat gun and bent these two in no time .
Cut them to shape and a little work filing and sanding .
Put on a leather loop and good to go .
Gave one to my wife and the other to my oldest daughter .
Well got some big thanks for this .

I’ve met a lot of guys who said to me they wanted to learn woodworking because of the projects they use to do with thier Grand Dad. Sounds like a great day for both of you.

As I was eating my heart healthy salad I was thinking of salad tongs—believe me, these are much better! Great looking and great project to do with your grandson. Congratulations on a day well lived!

At first look I was thinking…... how the heck are you going to eat with those! Then it hit me and my back started to itch! A day spent with a grandchild is a great day! Nice work as always Kiefer!

You have really learned the art of bending Kiefer.
These are lovely gifts and handsome pieces of bentwood craft.
