My Great Uncle was a carpenter back in the 1930’s. I recently had the chance to go through his old toolbox and marvel at some of the old tools. Most of them I could figure out, but these two have me scratching my head.
They are wooden paddles. One with a straight wedge design (the lighter colored one) and the other has a slight curve to it. The handles have a lot of patina so they saw a lot of use, but there is no heavy wear or damage to the paddles themselves that would indicate lots of pounding or abrasion.
Anyone recognize them for what they might be?
Here is the rest of the look inside the old toolbox for anyone that has a fascination with old woodworking tools.
