Now I have a pair of tongs and a pair of spurtles right next to the stove. Why do I seem to be making my own tools in pairs?
At least I think I’ll get more use out of the tongs than the (so far unused) spurtles. At least they were educational when I was learning how to turn them!
I won’t stop at two tongs though. I have a pair of whisk style tongs with plastic handles that have broken. I should be able to epoxy the business end of the tool into a matching oak handle. Then I’ll get some new life out of an otherwise useful tool, that just won’t stay closed!
