Wood Dash Churns Most towns had a cooper that made this style of butter churn. The better quality butter churns would have the staves tongue and grooved to prevent leakage. The lids were often sunken below the upper ends of the staves to prevent cream running down the side of the churn. The bands could be flat steel or brass, round wire or even reeds. Ash and cedar were common woods used for these butter churns.
This is the way we made butter on the farm. Butter Churn. Excellent and simple design--they work perfectly.
.why can't they make formica counter tops look like old folk art painted or quilt tops or stenciled???????
Butter Churn - Because glass churns contained only a small amount of cream, they made butter much faster than the bigger, older churns. In the 1920s, some churns even began to add gears into their handles in order to speed up the paddles which agitated the cream. This could make for very fast butter. One glass churn that hit the market then was called the Premier Two-Minute Butter Machine, and it was advertised to “positively make butter in two minutes and whip cream in one.”
