ok here are the spatulas i made that go along with the walnut and maple tray
one is the walnut left from the tray, one is some scrap cherry, and the other is left over bubinga. I patterned them after one that we got as a wedding gift several years ago.
I made them with a band saw and an oscilating belt sander. They are finished with miniral oil.
The story behind them is, this past friday at a christmas party we played dirty santa. Someone brought a hand made spatula as a gift. It didn’t take long for it to be stolen so many times it was finally frozen. A lady at the party suggested I make her one. I had never thought about doing that, but made the attempt. We came home and I made 2, one cherry and one Walnut. My wife took them saturday when all the girls went shopping and ended up selling 5. So I ended up making 11 total Saturday. All out of walnut, cherry and bubinga.
What you can’t tell from the pictures is that the flat part of the spatulas are actually slightly curved up, to help with scooping. I’ll try and take a better picture
