Beautiful card/inkle weaving beaters, hand crafted from a piece of Bubinga burl. These beaters are also made from a smooth center cut, so the grain is super fine, smooth and almost soft to the touch. These beaters have a firm sharp edge perfect for working on weaving bands. The beaters are heavy enough to pack down your weft, but light enough to allow for hours of weaving. The finish is a light wax oil to allow the beauty of the wood to shine through, and all the beaters have been hand sanded 4 different times with a sandpaper up to 1500 grit for a silky, smooth touch and a wonderful feel in the hand.
Bubinga's heartwood ranges from a pinkish red to a darker reddish brown with darker purple or black streaks. Sapwood is a pale straw color and is clearly demarcated from the heartwood. Bubinga is very frequently seen with a variety of figure, including: pommele, flamed, waterfall, quilted, mottled, etc.
The Celtic design is a new one, taken after some stylized Celtic imagery. Super elegant and unique, each beater has it's own style and character. It is certainly a conversation piece and a wonderful tool.
These beaters have a 6 inch long edge, 5 inches long at the weft holder, and 6 inches long at the top. The overall width is 2.25 inches. If you have any question, please let me know and thank you for looking!. The overall width is 2.25 inches. If you have any question, please let me know and thank you for looking.
