After stirring the pot with my cherry wooden spoon, it was so terribly sad to then use a plastic spatula for mushroom and onion sautee work. So I went back to the workshop and my scrap pile.
Found the cherry remnants of the spoon project and sketched out a spatula-shape. Cut rough shape at band saw, then refined using rasps and finish sanding. A few coats of thinned poly and my wooden spoon has a new brother.
