Hand Crafted Spalted Maple Tatting Shuttle


This 2 3/8 inch tatting shuttle does not need any extras! No carving, burning, ivory inlay or scrimshaw!! It's a natural beauty! The spalting patterns are actually caused by fungi infection in the wood. As each micro fungi colony grows through the wood it leaves natural ring and line patterns or tracks. This wood has been stabilized under high pressure with resin which goes into ever wood cell making it extremely hard and waterpoof. It is initialed and dated by Dave, the maker.

This tatting shuttle is currently up for auction on Ebay. Please click the link below to view the auction.
