    Here is my custom spurtle in American Beech along with a little spurtle spreader in Cherry that they sent as a gift. Too cute!

    I like them too, not so much the spoons, but there is one wooden......... Spatula really isn't the right word, but it has a flat edge set at an angle and it is a bit cupped. I bought one and then couldn't find any more. So I made a couple more from some Birdseye maple that didn't pass muster for knife handles. I love them. I have thought several times about offering them for sale, but getting wood in good quality that will stand up to the abuse of the kitchen and then the time to actually make them, I didn't know if I could sell them for enough.
    I know maple and beech work well for this, it's getting some that has some interesting figure, like curly or Birdseye. I wonder if sycamore is a food safe wood? That can be interesting if you cut it right.
    Maybe if there is enough interest I'll look into doing a run of these and some spurtles, if someone would be willing to loan me one, so I can get the design right.
    Also, what would you guys think is a reasonable price for wooden utensils like this?

    I LOVE Birdseye. I've only got one in It because its not common to use for kitchen utensils I guess. I think it's beautiful.

    The cheapest I've paid is $25, the most expensive was the Birdseye at $55. If you do decide to make a few, I have several so I can send you one. And if you decide to make another Birdseye or curly, I'd love to buy one lol.

    Here's my meat browning spurtle. As you can see, it's gotten a lot of love over the years

    And sycamore seems to be food safe . . .

    I love wooden spoons. I'm a part of the bamboo crowd as well. They're nothing fancy, but I absolutely adore them all the same.

    I'm a huge wooden spoon fan. I inherited a giant hundred year old risotto spoon that was bent and twisted in a dozen different directions just from sitting on the pot. I also got a couple big soup spoons from chef. Came to work one day and saw little tiny splinters of wood all over my kitchen. Apparently, my gm and one of the owners got into a cocaine and alcohol fueled drum session and destroyed all my spoons. They claimed they didn't remember a thing. The security video on the other hand tells a different story. I quit on the spot.
    I carved the ones I'm currently using now when I was recuperating from my first heart surgery back in 2007. It gave me something to do while I was sitting in bed. ***** to clean up the wood chips though. These are roughly based on some Native American beliefs that all things have soul. Often times you feed the spoon before you feed yourself thus, the open mouths. Two of them are cherry wood and one is white birch.
