  • This is exquisitely done! The pictures are beautiful too. Did you use the existing spatula to trace out a blank?

  • Thank you so much! I did use the original for a basic form. However, my wife and I had a few features that we wanted to be different from the original. So, once the basic shapes were cut on the band saw. Both the "paddle shape" of the spatula, and the curve for the spatulas scoop, I used a belt sander and hand sanded until the spatula reached the desired shape. I have a whole makers video showing the process. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wcw7wtq9CF8

  • Thanks for sharing the video! It was really cool to watch it take shape- especially after the band saw, how you take it from a rough cut out to a perfectly smooth and symmetrical finished product. Awesome work and great video!

  • Thank you. I'm glad that you enjoyed both my work on the spatula, and in the video!
