This is a quick and easy way to make a big wooden fork and spoon.
For whatever reason, my wife has always wanted a giant spoon and fork to hang on the kitchen wall. This year I actually got around to making them. I started with two 24-inch pieces of soft white pine that were roughly 2" by 4". The finished fork ended up about 22" long, and the spoon about 18" long.
There are a handful of tutorials around the internet on how to make wooden utensils, and many right here on instructables. However, I felt there was still some value in sharing the methods I used to make mine.
The only major tool you will need access to is a band saw. Good luck, thanks for taking a look.
Step 1: Layout profiles
Begin by laying out the top and side profiles of the fork and spoon on the pieces of wood with a permanent marker. Just eyeball it, but make sure the curves and flares that make up the utensil shapes match up on the sides and tops where you want them to.
Step 2: Cut side profiles first
Cut the side profiles first using a band saw, working slowly and carefully.
Be sure to keep all the cut off sections, which will be used in the next step.
Step 3: Tape blocks back together, drill holes
Fasten all the cut off pieces back where they started using masking tape.
At this point, it is helpful to drill holes in the crooks of the tines.
Step 5: Shape outside of spoon
There are a number of ways this could be done, depending on what tools you have available. This seemed to be the most effective and least costly for me.
