This is a little fill in job that I’m taking to the show in November to see if they sell. They are measures for spaghetti for 1 to 4 servings. I used up some of the left over wood on my bench rather than throw it in the barrel. Three are mahogany and three are spalted beech. I put in a hang hole but if you think about it, they are full of holes. I can eliminate that on any more I make!!
They are finished with Behandla salad bowl finish.

Doug and Larry- here are the sizes: 13/16” , 1 3/16” , 1 3/8” , and 1 5/8”. I copied one that was given to us from some people in Italy That set of Forstner bits by 1/16’s came in handy for this project.

Very nice. This is a great idea.

Now if I can find spaghetti in 3’ lengths, I’ll be all set with a single serving!

I’ve obviously had a deprived education Jim, I wouldn’t have guessed what they were if my life depended on it! That of course doesn’t alter the fact they are beautifully made. Even my wife, who, unlike me, eats spaghetti didn’t know.
Last minute note. My brother-in-law just arrived and he knew instantly what they were. He told me that they are readily available here made from plastic, so hand made wooden ones should sell well.

Nice looking project Jim. They are new to me also, can’t beat measuring by the handful. What length does the spaghetti need to be to get the correct serve?
