I made Stir Fry Sticks for wedding favours as a project this summer. I used up all the left over pieces of my Plum and Cherry Trees and some wood from a Wild Cherry Tree that a friend dropped off. There is one from a left over piece of Hemlock Burl and another 20 made of Yellow Cedar scraps. I coated them with Mineral Oil and let them hang in the box for 24 hours and wiped them off. The cooking end is tapered to a dull point. I ripped around 230 strips and wound up with maybe 195 finished pieces. Won’t need them all. I changed the shape of 15, some longer, some with a rounder handle, just to see if I liked another style. Most are around 13 1/4” long and 5/16” thick. The hole is 1/4”, big enough for a piece of coat hanger to fit through.
This was time consuming but a great way to clean up a pile of wood. I had strips piled everywhere so I made the work surface for my lathe that I posted earlier.
