A while back I drove past a house with a front yard full of freshly cut wood, and a great big FREE sign. After I locked up the brakes and got the truck out of a ditch, I talked to the homeowners. Nice folks. I want to give them something back. I wound up with 12 nice pieces. These kitchen tools used up about half of one piece.

14 and 1/2” length x 3/4” thick, the widest spatula is 2 and 1/2”

No finish applied. I will recommend mineral oil, but leave it to them if they want it.

Ash. Google says the early settlers used ash for spoons and the like because it did not impart an odor or flavor into the food.

A spoon, 2 spatulas and an oven rack tool. I like big, thick cooking tools, I hope they will too.

I like the oven rack pull (always burning my hands)
