*ZEBRANO /ZEBRAWOOD BUTTER KNIVES/SPREADERS & DISHES By Bazza.
Treated to a top class Restaurant in London a Client asked is it possible you could make this type of tableware ?
Hell Yes ! So here are my first two samples To which they are well pleased and have now made a rather pleasing order. ZABRANO perfect timber for this , the color and the grain gives a very rich interesting touch.
Butter Dishes have a little Router work, and finished with a 0000 steel wool -tung oil and Butchers block food safe oil. This project is nothing new to LJs but these are now quite popular through out Europe in particular Scandinavia .Thanks for checking out my projects hope you find these of interest.
Regards Bazza.

Thanks Marty….This is good use in small pieces of very expensive timber, It can be a bit coarse to cut but soft enough to carve quite easy… Shines up well with a little oil.
Cheers Bazza.

Hi Larry :::::: Glad you like them… I could not find a template so I winged it ! Bit of guess work trial and error , to be honest thats how it seems to work for me.The Router Bit is simple standard round nose bit “1/4 inch palm router” . So I could hold the timber easier I marked out the internal size first on a board then routered it out then cut the outside and sand and shaped. The Butter Knife is just cut the basic shape on the scroll saw and use a detail sander till your happy with the shape. Fun to make and quite appealing. Good luck Larry foe 2015.

Thanks Candy :: I am pleased so is my Client ! Pleasure to make just have to be so careful sanding thin timber butter knives as it far to easy for it to dig in and grip and ripp right out your hands breaking the Knife your fingers and or your sander.. Take care Regards Barry.
