Handcrafted Beautiful Burl Wood Tatting Shuttle


This is a 2 ½ inch shuttle Dave made from a couple of pieces of Maple burl he had been holding onto for sometime. He had planned on making knife handles someday but figured he may never get around to that, so...here's a tatting shuttle instead! It is as light as a feather!

Dave usually spends time adding artwork or inlays to his shuttles but this tatting shuttle needs none of that! It is it’s own piece of artwork! Can you use your imagination to find images in it? To me its like looking at the spiral galaxies of planets and nebulas through the Hubble telescope. What can you find?


This tatting shuttle is currently up for auction on Ebay, where more photos can also be found.
