Have a go at spatula making:

Learn to make a kitchen spatula from freshly cut unseasoned wood using only hand tools and skills. We use a froe to cleave (split) the wood from a freshly cut log and then move on to use a shaving horse and drawknife. After shaping the blank you work with a spokeshave and whittling knife to complete your spatula. The spatula will then be ready for years of use and happy memories of making your own kitchen spatula - scrambled eggs will never be the same again!
