i made these two items for my friend in arizona, we both like and enjoy all types of beans, and these were made for him. the ladle is made from red cedar, and the spoon is made from sassafras. we sometimes talk of opening a restaurant that would serve nothing but different beans and bean soups.. we would call it..CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER…for obvious reasons….each chair would have a whoopie cushion built into the seat..:)

These look great, Grizzman! I wish I could carve! I think that my ladle will be in the shape of a shoe! (Now there’s something we can do with them when we are done! – you would have to have a big foot though!)

Do you use a power carver (Dremel) or do it by hand. They really are very cool!

You are too much Bob, can’t you ever be serious? These are great carvings, I love that ladle, I tell you what, I’ll make the bowls for the bean soup. Wouldn’t that be cool. Coarse the health dept. wouldn’t let us get away with it. I don’t think you’d need the whoopie cushions under the seats, what you would need to serve are gas masks. Love ya buddy, glad to see you busy, mike

Great utensils, Grizz!
My grandparents had things like this… i think I still have a couple that have stood the test of time.
They are destined to be heirlooms and passed down as mine were.

can you collect the gas
and run the stove
to cook the beans with it
hoses from the whoopie cushions
give discount to preferred customers
or like those clubs in some states
have your own collector tank
and get charged only for the soft drinks
and ice (the ice served in the cushion)
very upscale idea
little meters on the tanks
so everyone can try for a weekly prize

great carving there grizz
nice spoons

Love the wood utensiles. I made a couple out of Maple 20 years ago and we still use them in our kitchen

Griz: Some great looking carving. I think your restaurant iis a hair raising idea.

There is a restaurant in Independence, MO called Dixon’s Chilli. been there for years and counts Harry Truman as one of their customers.

But my favorite was OT Hodges in St. Louis, just down the street from my office.

They served an item called a “Slinger” two hamburger patties, covered with a fried egg, then cheese and everything covered by Chilli. What a great way to start a day.

The waitresses were loud mouthed and yelled the order to the cook. All of the employees were convicted felons, the owner hired them to get them retrained.

Whoa!!!!!!!!! Grizzman – Please do not follow Patrons advice, you must not serve politicians, or certain actors and actresses, way to much GAS is emitted from them naturally, let alone the tremendous volume of gas that would then be released from eating beans too. You wouldn’t dare have an open flame on your stove or ovens with people like that there, they already produce enough to power Washington DC. Remember, safety first when working with explosive material, and they are full of it. On the other hand, if you could get them all together for one big meal, and then have a suicide bomber run through the restaurant flicking a Bic, then the loss of the restaurant would be worth it, as you would be indulged with money from grateful Americans who would be so appreciative of your sacrifice, but patriotic act to rid us all of traitors. Oh, great ladle and spoon, would love to have a source of sassafras root for making natural root beer.

You could even sell an auto kit….a cushion with a hose direct into the “gas” tank. Then you could advertise meals by how many miles to the bowl….or get the “maximizer” with an extra 20 miles (has a helping of chili fries and brussell sprouts on the side). I also agree about serving politicians – they already expell way too much noxious gas as it is…..Sorry…had to throw that in.

Anyway, very nice utensils. Wood is so much better as it does not retain heat so that you burn your hands. It is easy to clean and I have never heard of an outbreak of food poisoning that was traced back to any wooden implements…..I’ve used wooden bowls, spoons and utensils all my life and never had any illness due to them.

Grizz,
I recommend you stick to wood working and leave the resturant business to others. Nice work!
