Dave has handcrafted this 3 inch post tatting shuttle out of ebony wood. He has also inset a tiny resin cameo in it. Sometime back, he stopped applying a high gloss shellac or lacquer finish to his shuttles and have opted for the hand rubbed satin bees wax finish. There are several reasons for this, one being that a gloss finish will disappear anyway after a little use. Second, a waxed finish is easier to hold on to and is easier to maintain by the shuttle owner. This beautiful tatting shuttle is currently up for auction on Ebay.
