Woke up this morning and had a couple of quiet hours all to myself – time to make some sawdust!
I’ve been wanting to add a wooden spatula to my set of cooking utensils for a while now, so I searched around in my scrap bin and found a REALLY old piece of cherry reclaimed from an old desk.
There was enough wood for me to make both the spatula and the spoon shown here.
Both are around 13 inches long and started out around 3/4” thick – after sanding and shaping they vary from 1/2 to 5/8 I would guess. The spatula’s face is around 3” wide.
The spoon was the hardest, with the shaping of the bowl taking by far the most time, but from rough slab to oil finish it took me around two hours for both pieces. Not too shabby!
This was a perfect way to spend the first day of 2014, and now I have two more items to cook with – bonus!
