Money for nothin’ but my kicks are free

No money to buy lumber for a spec project and the chainsaw doesn’t work, what do you do? Make spoons and honey dippers!

Although I would rather be making furniture or working on bowl, sometimes you just have to make due and have fun with what you got! Now I have enough pieces for the next craft show on Sunday!

A fellow blogger asked me about using a honey dipper because he had never used one before. I do like the honey dipper better than a spoon because it fits better in the jar, you don’t get the massive amounts at one time, and you can clean it off quick with a bit of warm or hot water.

P.S. I got the part for my chainsaw yesterday afternoon and I did get it installed and she started up! Yeah!!!!!

  2. What kind of wood do you recommend for the Honey dippers?

      I would most likely use a wood with a tight grain and that was not naturally oily. Most fruit woods, holly, maple etc…. Not sure I would use an exotic.Thanks for writing! yaakov….
