Good looking pair of tongs, Toby! I like the hole details in the tips. I, too, would like to know what kind of wood this is and are these the kind that can fold flat? I keep telling myself ‘I need to make some wooden tongs’...usually as I’m using a fork to get toast out of the toaster! Thanks for sharing!

Great job there brother.
The design is really nice.
The finish is beautiful, and their usefulness is evident.
I think you have the makings of a master craftsman my friend.

keep up the good work and make sure you post future projects.
I would love to see them.

Great job on those tongs. With this design you can go on to make a nice compass too. Welcome to LJ’s.
Hope to see more projects.

That is a nice looking set of tongs.. it is nice to see you have a shop at school when many schools have discontinued shop. You’ll find you can make all kinds of things from wood . I hope you have a lathe at school- turning wood is so creative and you get some fine results in a one hour class.
Keep up the good work and keep the projects coming.

Cheers, Jim

For future projects add a couple views, note the wood species used and the approximate size. Your work may inspire others to make the same project!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for sharing!!

I hope this starts you down the path to a life-long interest in a satisfying hobby. Everything you build advances new skills and new ways to approach the crafts of woodworking.
Make sure and tell us the details, what wood(s)s you used, what finish you used and why, as well as dimensions. Tell the story of how you came up with the idea of the projects, the need it fulfills or who it’s meant to serve. The details will help others to avoid pitfalls, and how to fix any flaws or mistakes that occur (Trust me on this, you’ll make them and how you suss them is a big part of what makes a great woodworker).
Great job. Welcome to Lumberjocks, and keep the projects coming!

what an excellent result Toby, however, I’m intrigued as to HOW you made them. A description from start to finish would be appreciated because I’m not at all sure that I know how I would go about it.
