    Since TK volunteered, he gets to be the official chopstick field tester.
    I got started then thought a fresh cup of coffee would help wash down the sawdust.


    Now, back to the grindstone.

    Those might benefit from a little sliming..........

    Mmhh, I was looking at cut-offs the other day, wondering what to do with them... Not sure I dare doing that on a fixed speed sander, bit it's a neat idea. Looking forward to seeing your collection of chopsticks from every wood available

    I didn't know I was going to make the chopsticks.
    Been working on the website all day and needed a break.
    So when TK made his comment, I thought what the heck, I'll make a pair.
    Good way to wind down the day.

    Getting closer.


    Not sure how slim to go with the tips.
    Right now the tips are 1/8"

    I think that 1/8 is just fine. Don't want to get too fragile, now!

    I think they are about done now.

    No finish on them yet. Not sure whether to wax, oil or.....?
