Handcrafted Wooden UtensilsComments (0)
Turn shop scraps into kitchen tools.
By Paul Anthony
Looking for fun-to-make gifts for the cooks in your life? Wooden utensils are easy to craft, attractive, comfortable, and guaranteed not to scratch expensive pots and pans. And for those in need of last-minute gifts, wooden utensils don’t require a lot of shop time. You can bandsaw and sand a simple fork or spatula in an hour or less. A spoon might take a couple of hours. Any cook would love handmade tools like these, and it’s a good bet they’ll think about you as they use them.
All you need to make a personalized chef’s set are a few thick chunks of wood, a bandsaw, half-round mill file, power sander, and a gouge. Feel free to play around with the size and style of your utensils, but make sure to keep the fork tines sufficiently thick and blunt enough to withstand use.
