I just finished this spatula, inspired by Paul Sellers. Its made of birch. I added a little sun carving on the handle to make it more unique.

Thanks for looking!

Very nice, Maur. Just be careful…spoons are addictive to carve! :)

Thanks fellas, his was very easy to carve with a only 3 carving tools, one gouge to make the circle, a small shallow one to shape the circle a little, and a V tool to make the squiggly rays.

I havent done much carving since the Peter Follansbee box, kid of fun to add simple quick carvings to otherwise plain projects.

Nice spatula. What kind of finish did you use on it? Looks like a fun easy project to make for gifts. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Lee.

Thanks Leafherder: I just put some olive oil on it. I know that conventional wisdom says that this is not a good idea. However Paul Sellers has used olive oil on his cutting boards for a long time with no issues. I trust his opinion so I gave it a shot.

Great idea, Mauricio, I’ve seen similar objects made of Koa and Macadamia Nut woods in Hawaii. Have you tried it yet? I’m curious whether the in-line handle works as well as an off set handle….......Wes

I bet those woods would work well, I intend to use some prettier wood on the next ones.

It worked well to scramble some eggs yesterday but it didn’t scoop very much up when it cam time to serve it.

I think the design makes sense since you don’t have to approach the skillet from the side like a straight spatula, you can approach it from the front with the spatula tilted if that makes any sense. Make one and give it a try!

Nice NORDIC design to this and the birch is just perfect .
Maybe a little scoop shape would help for using it for serving food .
