These are 2 sets of hors d’oeuvres that I made for my sister. I’m not really happy with their outcome, but, they’ll do I guess. Wood is Bloodwood, the other is Wenge, and both finished with Danish Oil. Thnx for the looks, and any comments, good, bad, and/or ugly. I appreciate em

We really need a LJ’S Barbeque. All of these food utensils need testing. Nice job Roger.

Really like the Wenge set. Nice contrast between the stainless and the wood!

I think they look fantastic and you can never have too many cheese knives, I always say.

The only thing I might suggest is that the handle on the shaver (the triangle with the slot in it) could be a bit longer, as you often use this on harder cheese and leverage goes a long way. Not a major complaint though – these look great and very usable. Your sister is lucky!

The good, they look great. The bad, those are the things that go in the drawer and never come out. The ugly, let me go find my mirror.

They look good to me Rog…..but I’m kinda with Dave on this one…...what do use them for?...

On the drive home tonight I stopped at Aldi’s for a few groceries…...saw some stainless steel utensils there and wondered, can I rip the handles off and build some new ones? Then I had visions of “sounds easier than it is” ......

Not sure what you don’t like about them – but they look mighty fine!

thnx again, guyz & galz, everyone..... Kay: thnx, I do agree with you about the handle on the largest one… Dave: LOL that’s funny!! Jeff: these would’ve been much easier to turn if the blanks I was using were larger. They were only 5/8” x 5/8”, and really too small for these, but, I kinda “squeezed” em out..
