Where can I get the chatter tool you demonstrate?


A Chatter Tool is a scraper with a thin blade which when held against spinning end grain vibrates, or chatters, rapidly sculpting a wide variety of textured patterns. Such patterns enhance the appearance of items and are used to further decorate turned lidded boxes, spinning tops and bottle stoppers among others. The average cut takes less than three seconds. Most folks who see an object with chatter work decoration perceive it as intricately hand carved, something which must have taken many hours and a very steady hand.
