Jon, I'm not sure if we already have a kitchen tool category ?
I like doing my own kitchen tools, here is a first example :
This one was made from a section of table leg, out of beech wood.
It is a king size one, larger than whatever we can commonly purchase here in France.
Beech wood is actually one of the rare official species completely safe for food contact.
There is no finish, no need for that in the kitchen.
