These are fun to do. I just sent my first order of these to Singapore.

I guess if I could make them from icicles, I could sell them to the Inuits ;D)

Nice work. What tool did you cut them with? If you cut the letters with a scroll saw, you got some steady hands. I couldn’t cut them like that because I shoot with this hand.

Nice woods used for them. Good idea with scrolled letters.

Thanks guys! I do cut them with my scroll saw and they do take a bit of a toll on my digits… but mostly from the sanding.

These look good, what method do you use to shape the chopsticks?

Thanks! I use my belt sander to taper them from about 5/16 to about 3/32”, through grits 120, 220, 320, then hand sanded 400 and 600. I use a mineral oil and beeswax mixture for finish.
