    A Gaggle of Muddlers

    I also finished up the order for 20 muddlers out of pecan. They parameters specified by the customer was pretty liberal. Just had to be between 8 1/2" and 9 1/2". Also, only to be oiled. Everything else was up to me. So I had some fun, though I admit that after about 15 of them I was glad it was soon to be done with. I bunched the photos up for simplicity's sake. Also, I actually turned 21 so I told her I was throwing in an extra one for the fun of it. She accepted them and now I am getting ready to ship them out. Didn't know if anyone had seen that many muddlers in one spot, so I thought I would post them. If nothing else, I sure got in some skew practice.

    That is truly a mad mess of muddlers!

    They look good!

    The other project that'll get you a lot of skew practice is to find a wool spinning class and make 30 some orifice hooks (basically little handles with a long wire hook glued in the end) - or as in my case.. have a spinning class find you

    Thanks, guys! Ryan, may all the wood spinning classes find you! I will pass on that. The muddlers is enough. Seeing she is going to want more in increments of 10, I will turn a couple here and there so I will already be ready for it. Then I won't have to muddle forever. hehe But, it was a nice special order and the shop needs the money for more goodies.

    OK, what are mudlers? Other than being pretty are they billy clubs for gnomes, weird ball bats for trolls, or just "other?"

    Enjoy,
