Bone Embroidery Thread Laying Tool & Tip Protector

This 5 1/4 inch laying tool was handcrafted by Dave from Buffalo bone. While he has made these before, this is the first where he has incorporated a point protector with the tool. The tip protector is turned from burl wood and attaches to the tool by means of an elastic stretch cord and lobster claw clasp. It is easily and quickly removable from the tool for use. Once finished just re-clasp and stretch the protector back in place. Easy Peezy!

This laying tool is currently up for auction on Ebay. More photos can be found at the auction listing.
