Cherry Wood Tatting Shuttle


Dave had laser retinal surgery on Friday and when he disappeared Saturday, I had a sneaky feeling I knew where he was. Sure enough, I found him sanding away in his studio! My attempt to convince him that he might want to refrain from doing something that might get in his eye, fell on deaf ears :) This beautiful
shuttle is what came out of the studio.

Dave handcrafted this 2 5/8 inch shuttle out of American Cherry and burn etched the filigree design on both sides. He has also initialed and dated this piece that is currently up for auction on Ebay.
