One of my daughters has pottery in school and was making some rice bowels. She asked me if i would make her some chopsticks. After going to bed thinking about it this is what i came up with. it works very well and is fun to turn out chopsticks from varied wood species. This was made from scrap Maple in my shop and fits both this low-angle jack plane and my #4 smoothing plane.
