Spoons and Spatula

Most of us would consider a wood bowl to be the most common and used turned item in the kitchen. But we might reconsider our opinion once someone mentions wood turned spoons. We use spoons or spatula's for almost all cooking!

Spoons are simple to turn and usually require some amount of carving to make the nice bowl shape. Also the nice part about making your own spoons is that you can choose any type of wood that you like. I also find them to be great gifts. Nobody would turn down a hand turned spoon!

Making a SpatualMaking a Spatual
By: David Reed Smith
In this advanced project, David not only turns a beautiful handle for his spatula but he shows how to make a custom bent spatula head. The head is a made from several pieces of thin wood and laminated into a custom made form. David goes through all the steps to make your own form to bend the spatual heads.

The great thing about this project (and all of David's) is the quality of the photo's and descriptions so that any experienced woodworker should be able to find it easy to follow these instructions!!

In this photo tutorial, Darrell takes you step by step through the process of creating the blank for the spatula and trimming it on the bandsaw. Then he gives a couple of alternatives to holding it on the lathe. Turning of the handles is next followed by sanding the blade of the spatula.

The good pictures and the clear descriptions make this project easy to follow.
