This is an Egyptological classic
The author describing a lower forked stick and stone boring tool that simply does not exist in the artwork.
See "manufacturing Stone Vessels" in the link below.
It seems that when a mere hypothesis is committed to print, it then goes viral among the Egyptological community,
being accepted as cast iron evidence and fact. Parroted ad nauseam without any critical thought whatsoever.
Or just a plain and simple attempt at BS
In terms of context and IMO this is obviously a depiction of a woodwork/furniture shop, The only woodworking prerequisite that would require a pot is glue.
Is this guy mixing glue?
I can't be absolutely sure because I can't see exactly what's going on inside the pot.
Neither for that matter can anyone else.
