a few homemade kitchen tools

More cross-blog posting fun, where woodworking and the kitchen combine…

The two spurtles, I made last fall in a woodturning class. The top one is oak the bottom is cherry. Both are finished with walnut oil, and so far remain unused. I’ve only seen Alton Brown over on the Food Network use one to make oatmeal, or perhaps it was haggis. I just don’t seem to make enough of either to neccessitate two spurtles!

The turner, my brother-in-law liberated from a broken cutting board. Maple.

More artisan homegoods from (and more coming) over at my lumberjocks blog.

    Wow wow wow. I just read about these tools (and the pottery at your other site) and I just had to say how beautiful all these handmade items are.

    So beautiful!
