While giving my legs a break from turning the walnut split spindle for Fr. Chad's Prie Dieu , I decided to have a little fun.
 

 
Inspired by Steve’s (sras) Ultimate Kitchen Gadget build of 2012, I played around with an unplugged version for my step-son, Leonard, chef/kitchen manager at My Parents’ Basement, a neighborhood eatery in the Avondale Estates suburb of Atlanta.
 

 
Coming in at 24” long, 5-1/2” high, and 5” wide … it sports a stainless steel turner, cheese grater, wooden spatula, a stainless serving spoon, and a hidden set of tongs.
 

 
Thanks for looking!

Very cool. Hope your SS gets a laugh out of it. His co workers should also love it.

SWEET!, what chef wouldn’t like this. Bet you could sell tons of these, best original idea I’ve seen in a long time.

Nicely done, Ron. Looks like the dividers between sections are 3/8”-ish? Nice quick project if you didn’t have to do too much resawing.

Thanks! This is meant to be a Christmas present … I hope I can keep it quiet until then!

Thanks! Actually, this is a copy of an original idea … see Steve’s (sras) Ultimate Kitchen Gadget build of 2012.

Thanks, Dave! Yes, three 3/8” x 5-1/2” x 24” pine craft boards and a 4 ft. 1×12s from Lowes, and about five hours (before paint).

What fun to see this! Great job!

Thanks for referring to my version. As soon as I saw it, I thought “That looks familiar!” For those interested, here is a blog on my build…

Thanks, Steve! Mostly, thanks for the inspiration and a most detailed blog … I followed your build to the letter … well, as close as I could with just a few hand saws and files! Thanks again.
