Up first is a molinillo). It’s my first attempt at one, probably not my last.

I made this for the guy that gave me a truckload of walnut logs. It’s from the same tree. I got this piece a few months back and have been speed drying it in the microwave. He is from Mexico, so I hope he enjoys it. He might use it for kindling, but I like to give something to people that give me wood, from their tree.

The butter paddle is also walnut, courtesy Hurricane Ike.

The molinillo is 8” tall, the paddle is 12” long x 4” wide. No finish on either, they will probably not have a finish.

I got the hospital bed cart at a yard sale years ago. I made a piece that just sets on it, not attached. I gotta have my puter and itunes close by.

Beautifule Work!! I think I am going to make one of those whisks, they look so nice and I do love me some hot Cocoa. What a great use for the cart, I have been contemplating using my puter in the shop but amd afraid the sawdust will kill it.

I roll the puter out of the way when I’m making sawdust. I have an equally low tech cover for it, a cardboard box.

Learned something new today, thanks hairy.
The molinillo is very interesting.
Did you carve the “fluted” parts first then turn it ?
I am trying to figure out how you did this.
Very nice work,

Lisa

Thanks for all the nice comments.

I turned it first. The handle was made the same way I made this.

I used a dremel to cut the whisk, I cut it freehand.

How come LJ isn’t on the puter screen?
