Original plastic handles of two spoons were broken. The spoons were of good quality so I made two wooden handles from a scrap of wood, white in color. In the mean time my chemist came with a broken handle of Fiskars scissors. I had a piece left from the same wood as the spoon and I made one handle for his scissors. Both of us were happy. The handles were made entirely from hand tools shown in the third picture. Making the curves and the holes was quite a task with hand tools but the results were satisfying. I am not sure about the name of the wood which I am trying to find, but it is on the softer side. After sandpapering the finish was very smooth and attractive with the white colour. Is there any way of applying a protective finish to these handles, maintaining the white colour of the wood ?
