Image of antique wooden carved tools. These are carved tools made out of wood. They were recently donated to the Coarsegold Historic Museum.

Do you know what they were used for or how old they might be?

The one standing upright has holes in the bottom but the bottom is covered in felt.

    My great grandmother (born near the Volga River area in Russia) had one she used for many things, but primarily for mashing potatoes. I’ve seen smaller, rounder pestles in antique stores.

    Guessing the small utensil with holes might have been used as a strainer.

    I seem to recall the two on the right being used to mix printers ink.

    I’m guessing for corking bottles or reloading ammo?
