Carved Fudge Spurtle

This was the piece I made today.  Evidently, it is called a "spurtle." In my mind it is a spatula.  This particular one was made for stirring fudge.  I don't know how well it will work for fudge but it feels very smooooooooooooth.

See the initial "j"?  That's my brand.  I took a little nail and bent it.  A wee bit has been cut out so that it looks like the dot over the j.  I lay this brand on top of the wood and then lay a hot wood burning tool on top of it.  It heats the metal enough to burn the brand in the wood.  That's my signature for the time being.
