Bespoke kitchen utensils

From a single piece of maple cut along the grain (bookmatched) to provide spindle orientation, to the lathe, where the handle is turned, and the basic form of the spoon, this project was a challenge, but also a great deal of fun!

The spatula took less hand carving than the spoon, but the end result is just as striking!
