Chop sticks
« on: July 13, 2014, 08:05:44 AM »
Have been wondering what to make from these old chop sticks for a while and then it dawned on me to simply refurbish them so fitted brass caps, a good sanding and polishing in the lathe and some fancy string work and my shabby old sticks are now state of the art.

The wife is away in Hong Kong for 10 days so I will gain some brownie points when she returns.

Cheers Mick

Mick,

That is great. I am sure your wife will love them.

I did something similar a few weeks back with some new chop sticks. I will find the pictures and start a new thread.
