I started making wooden tatting shuttles because of a conversation in the CompuServe Crafts forum. It sounded like an interesting problem to work out. I have had help in modifying the shuttle design from several people in the forum, notably Kathy Morgret and Marjorie Wilser. I have been able to refine the designs somewhat myself as I learned and have about forgotten by now to tat. If the veneer isn't thin enough, I sand it to about. This picture shows a piece of Cherry veneer being carried through the sander on a vacuum assisted carrier board. I make the shuttle shells by stack laminating 3 layers of veneer in a bending form.
