Solid Wood Kitchen Spatula, hand carved with leather hanging strap

Image Description
This hand carved and sanded spatula is made of soft, solid wood. It is one of a number made by my 13 year old son, who loves to "create" in the garage. He has learned so much by making these, including the way to smooth the grain by wetting the wood, letting it dry, and sanding again. They come out super smooth, and then he applies mineral oil. He has also included on most a leather loop for easy hanging. I use mine, that has an extra long handle, in the kitchen, mostly for stirring deep pots and pushing my home made pizza off my pizza peel onto a pizza stone. Each one is unique.
