A Very Canadian Nostepinne

While on holiday on Vancouver Island, Canada I went to see a friend of the family who turns wood.

The tree had grown within a mile of his workshop. He waxed the nostepinne with beeswax that also came from the area through a beekeeper he knew.

Here he is checking the diameter:
