these are two spoons i made for a friend of mine in Arizona, one is a ladle and the other is a spoon, the ladle is made from red cedar and the spoon is made from sassafras , i used my scroll saw to cut part of the shape, then i used my dremel, my foredom and hand chisels to create the hollowed out portions, these were the first kitchen items i have made and they were fun, although taxing for someone who has carpel tunnel or arthritis…but they were enjoyable to make and certainly enjoyable to give. when i was through with them i coated them in numerous coats of food safe mineral oil…they were made for use with beans. as my friend and i both enjoy all types of beans and bean soups, we have often talked of opening a restaurant that would be called CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER… we thought of having a whoppie cushion in the seat of each chair…and some other laughable things in a place that served only beans…:)...grizzman, here is a photo of the ladle and the spoon…kitchen utensils and here is another and one more of the spoon thanks for taking the time to look..carving is very satisfying to me and with the shoe challenge coming..i hope to enhance my skills..grizzman

can you collect the gas
and run the stove
to cook the beans with it
hoses from the whoopie cushions
give discount to preferred customers
or like those clubs in some states
have your own collector tank
and get charged only for the soft drinks
and ice (the ice served in the cushion)
very upscale idea
little meters on the tanks
so everyone can try for a weekly prize

i thought we would have a name for each dish served,,as in a bowl of black bean soup…we would call it rolling thunder…..so many ways to go with a place like that,,,lol…i always thought it would be a hit…just done have the bucks to ever do it…but i can cook…and there could be a lot of recipe’s from my own kitchen…a bowl of navy bean soup would be cool if it was called rat a tat tat…......lol…i better quit…i might go over the edge here…

yes mam…becuase of the inviroemnt here…our thinking gets a little cloudy….some great ideas going here…there is a little stuffed dog …called walter the farting dog…i thought that when you were ready to order..you would hold up the dog…squeeze him for the desired effect…and go from there….
