I'm just trying to put up one of those shade sail things and have had to come in out of the sun for my morning coffee. It's only 26ºC out there, but it's in a real sun trap and no wind so it feels quite warm! I've even put my steel toecap flip flops on, just in case 8-)

This was an unusual commission a little while back. Lead weighted head on it for a better whack!

It's not a cosh, well it is of sorts I suppose? It's a fisherman's priest and it's for bashing fish on the head, but only when they've been caught :mrgreen:

I've been told that it's completely painless, but I suppose that is unless you hit your fingers when holding the fish? -?

nicely done John
what woods are used?

It's really me doing the leg pulling Charles, sorry. I'll 'try' to be a good boy in future? :rolleyes:

That would be a new experience.....

Have the fish been told that, too? :-D

I expect that they have been told and remember that fish do have fingers. Birds Eye sell them frozen.

Richard, if I remember correctly the main part is beech and the end toggle is oak and there are several ounces of lead in the hollow fat end. I remember that the fisherman was very pleased with it.

On the subject of fish fingers a moment. A class of children from a London East End school were taken on a trip to one of the fishing ports on the east coast. I think it was Grimsby? The idea of the trip was to show them around the birds Eye factory up there and to show them that fish don't really have fingers. So many of them had never actually seen a fish and as they have eaten fish fingers they thought that the fish really had them.


My ambition for a good while is to grow old disgracefully. So far my wife tells me that I am doing really well!

Over here–way to your west, or your east if you take a longer route–they have a different name. "Fish fingers" is a Briticism that baffled me until I figured it out from a number of contexts. We call those things fish sticks.

Beautifully made. Can we see a watch on it, perhaps? Thanks.

very nice work and beautiful timbers
Your maple is always very attractive to me and that red oak is too.
Excellent all round

That is such a simple and elegant idea RA. You have made a lovely job of them. That purple heart is quite spectacular!
