Please join me to see how I “Turn Fantastic Kitchen Utensils – Spatula & Spoon”

Ask questions live, in real time, just like you were right next to me

This demonstration will show how to make a spatula and spoon. However, not just an ordinary spatula or spoon but these kitchen utensils add a fantastic feature that lets them reside on the side of a pot or pan waiting for you to use. No more dripping sauce on your cooktop or counter – keep the sauce in the pot or pan! The other feature of the spatula is the curved, slanted and thin edge. This creates a natural position for your hand to move the food around any pot or pan.

I will show you the drawing of this design and then talk about wood selection. We will look at rough cutting the blank on the bandsaw and then mark out the blank for mounting on the lathe. There will be a need to put in some layout lines to guide where to turn. I will go through the turning of two utensils with slightly different shapes. The crucial feature will be turned and then it will need to be tuned up by hand off the lathe. I will show the profile cutting of the spatula and spoon on the bandsaw. The final step is to sand each to the final profile. I will show the set up of a drum sander on the lathe. The spoon interior will need to carved and sanded out. We can talk about finish options and I will share my thoughts on how to finish these useful items.
