So there I am in my garage minding my own business (and my fingers) when a neighbor, from down the stree aways walks up. We didnt know each other and he just gave his first name. Asked if I was interested in some tools. He was cleaning out his garage and because he always saw me out there tinkering thought maybe I could use it. Gave me a brand new unused dovetail fixture (not the expensive kind) but beats the hell out of mine…wait, I didnt have one!!
This was a couple weeks ago. Sunday morning he comes back. Gives me a DeWalt DW682 Plate joiner. Lol, right after I spent the entire Saturday doweling pieces for a cabinet Im making. Again a tool I didnt have. This time I told him I couldnt just take it. I need to do something for him in return. He said ok. He had these fancy expensive silicone spatulas that came with dinky handles only about 5 inches long and one broke whithin a week. Could I make handles?
Thus the teak spatula handles. Sanded down to 320 grit and buffed. Finished with food grade mineral oil.
