Darning Mushroom hand made from Spalted Beech
This very tactile darning mushroom has been hand made by us from locally sourced Spalted beech.
We make a lot of these and have proved very popular, we make them in various hard woods.
The mushroom is hand turned , the head is about 3" (7cm) in diameter and the overall length is 5" (13cm) The handle is shaped with a finger groove under the mushroom head which makes a great grip point and is also useful should you wish to hold your fabric in place with an elastic band.
Once turned , the mushroom is sanded until super smooth before the polish is applied , then it is even smoother!
We have a few mushrooms here in our Etsy shop just to show what they are like , we can make others in various woods or sizes , just let us know.
Also the base has been made flat so they stand and can be used as decorative mushrooms as well!
