Was at Macbeath Hardwood earlier this week to pick up some walnut. Saw this awesome looking rosewood board that I just had to get!
Here is a pair of rosewood cooking chopsticks I made with a combination of hand plane and spoke shave.
First I marked the lines for the taper and drew the shapes at each end of the wood blanks. It took several passes for each side to make the taper. Then used the spoke shave to round off the corners to make the chopstick shape at the end. Sanded from 220 up to 500, then sprayed water to raise the grain. Sanded further from 500 to 3000. Oiled and let it dry.
These are 15 inches long. It’s made for cooking 🥘
