Making a Spurtle
A spurtle is a wooden stick for stirring porridge or similar thick substances
To make it more relevant, we will be teaching tool control for various tools. Bring your favourite spindle turning tool. We hope to have support for any spindle tool, including the skew chisel.
As this project can be sensitive to what species is used, wood blanks (Black Cherry) will be supplied - $2.00 per 1"x1"x14" blank.
Bring any or all of the following (sharpened):
3/4" Rouging Gouge
3/8" or 1/2" Spindle Gouge
1/2" Bowl Gouge (fingernail type grind preferred)
3/4" or 1" Skew Chisel
