Now that my marking gauge for the tool swap is in the mail, I had a chance to get back on a few backlogged projects.
About 8 months ago, I made and posted this project. My wife needed a few more roux spoons to give away to some special friends. I cut the basic shape out on the bandsaw, then resawed the shapes into two stirrers. Next step was to hand plane the edge on the blade (I used a Stanley No. 40 scrub plane because I like to) then some light rasping on the edges. Last step was sanding with the ROS. No finish was applied—just raw cedar.
EDIT: If you get a chance to participate in a tool swap, don’t hesitate. It is a chance to meet a challenge, to try some new skills you may never would have tried, and to do your best work to send off to a fellow LJ. Plus, you get a tool hand made by a fellow LJ. Highly recommend signing up for the next one—- I suspect I will as well.
