I didn’t know what I was going to make when I started this project. I had a small piece of mahogany and just started to sand it, I got bored with that, and didn’t know what to do, so I went over to the band saw and started cutting. Sure enough the shape that I had ended up looking like a spatula. So half way through I decided I was going to make a spatula and this is what I came up with. I put a simple route in it and also angled the handle only slightly. Let me know what you think, this is my first actual kitchen utensil besides a cutting board. How did I do?

Very nice and usefull tool. Next you need to make spoons and forks from the cut offs. They are very handy tools and take little wood.
Thanks for sharing and I enjoyed reading your journey into wood working…...........Jim

Is it non-Stick?? :) The first thing that came to mind was to make a larger one for a pizza oven. Then I thought, I need to build a large brick pizza oven.

I like it. It’s a very pretty use of the wood, and a classy-looking modernistic design. Make a full compliment of them (spoons, spatulas, stirrers) and a wooden peg-rack to hang them on. You done good!
