This is one of those projects that was just fun to do from the start. The spoon was designed and crafted for Guy Fieri. I have always liked watching his shows and thought it would be cool to make him his own personalized wooden spoon. I was about to start on a spoon for a friend and thought…why not do one for Guy also. I had a blast designing, carving and wood burning the spoon. It started life as a 3” x 3” X 16” piece of hard maple. After some intricate compound cuts on a bandsaw the carving began. It was finished with three soakings of mineral oil while being wet sanded with 400 grit sand paper….it felt like velvet in your hands. I shipped it off to his company “Knuckle Sandwich” two weeks ago and this Friday I received a hand written thank you letter from Guy himself…awesome! I was pretty blown away. I want to thank Lori at Knuckle Sandwich for taking the time and helping with all of this. Great company full of very nice people. This letter is definitely going to be framed!
