I made these tonight to go towards a craft fair I am trying to get a stock up to go to,they are made from zebra wood ,maple,walnut and I am not sure what type of wood the spatula is.I handcarved the spoon bowls with my gouge.They are sanded to 800grit and finished with food safe oil.My favorite is the zebrawood spoon!

Ashe, I like all of them – but I think they are just way too good looking to use. What are the approximate lengths, 12” and how thin is the front edge on the spatula?

Hey Northwest they are between 10-13inches I was using scraps of wood so I made them as big as i could to waste as little as possible,the spatulas are all about 1mm thick at the front edge.Any spoons i have made for myself i just hang on the wall but I do use one nice mahogany spoon!
