The two spurtles I made last fall in a woodturning class. The top one is oak the bottom is cherry. Both are finished with walnut oil, and so far remain unused. I’ve only seen Alton Brown over on the Food Network use one to make oatmeal, or perhaps it was haggis. I just don’t seem to make enough of either to neccessitate two spurtles!
The turner, my brother-in-law liberated from a broken cutting board. Maple.
I posted this entry pretty much verbatim over at wordpress (oh the joy of running multiple blogs) But I have updated the look of the banner to match the logo I submitted to Martin a few weeks back (now on the contest page).
FYI, the background of the virtual sign is actually part of a wooden jig or something used in bookbinding (approx 15” x 30” x 1 3/4”). I have this one, and 3 or 4 more at my grandparents house waiting for me. I’ve had this sitting in the kichen for a year now and I’m still brainstorming what I’m going to make out of them.
