Default Stir Plate of Fjalar and Galar

Norse Mythology (long story short): The gods created this dude who was super wise and never answered any question wrong. Two dwarves named Fjalar and Galar killed him and Brewed a Mead with his blood in the secondary to create a magic brew that bestowed mega knowledge to anyone who drank it.

This is the stir plate they used on brewday

The top is norse knot designs and the inner ring is norse futhark runes that spell out "Big Ts Brew House".

Works fine.. only got the funnel to reach the bottom once but that's ok with me. The symbol on the front is the Triple Horns of Odin (symbol for the three drinking horns Odin used to drink the mead after he stole it) and it controls fan speed.

Big router for removing most of the wood on top, then went on to the hand tools to carve out the edges and angles.
