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.

<p>This was an exceptionally good tutorial I have a metal one made out of Aluminum cast. bigger in size approximatel 122 cms in length and 22 cms in width at the widest area.</p>
<p>Hey, thank you!</p><p>Your aluminum ones look awesome! Did you make those?</p>
Can anyone say...."Everyone Lives Raymond"???? Lol! I've been wanting a pair of these since that episode!
<p>Try Black Scorpion dot biz you are sure to find the metal one there!!</p>
These were actually inspired by the ones on Marie and Frank's wall.
Great job and great result. I would have made them a bit darker (or could go the light route) and added a few more coats of food-safe varnish.
FEE-FI-FO-FUM!!!! Okay who stole my fork and spoon!!!!!
