Step 6: Marking Utensil Shapes

Picture of Marking Utensil Shapes
Now mark out your utensil shapes.  Here, I marked a fork, spoon and knife shape on my 3 pieces and know where I'm sanding to on the knife edge and spoon indentation.  If your pieces are thicker or longer than mine, your shapes might be different (you might actually have a fork instead of a thork).  I also went with pretty blocky shapes, mostly because the wood was soft and I wasn't sure how to go about this project at first, but with harder wood and more care and precision they could be much more elegant shapes.  Just remember that they have to be durable too.  Mine at least was meant for camping.
