Fibre Beating Sticks

Last weekend, I put off making more composition matcase cases to give me time to make more of the pulp beating sticks we sell. How many I make depends on how large a piece of maple lumber I can get. This time the plank was about 7½″ wide and a little over 6′ long, so that was enough to make 4 beating sticks.

This process generates many odd-shaped scraps, which I glue up to eventually make endgrain blocks for wood engraving or perhaps some day I’ll make a font of wood type.
