Handcrafted Inlayed Walnut Lace Tatting Shuttle

Currently up for auction on Ebay, is a larger 3 1/2 inch shuttle that Dave has handcrafted from walnut. On one side he has inlayed a piece of burl maple. He specifically looked for a piece of burl that had natural voids (holes) in it so that he could also inlace it with turquoise and brass, accenting its' natural art. This tatting shuttle has been initialed and dated by Dave and has a hand rubbed bees wax finish.
