Tools + Materials
Had a lot of fun with my Grandson making these, he now has the bug for wood working. Never thought that these would be such a hit with the family, great starter project.
Color + Finishes
I made 2 of oak and 2 of pine just to see how the different wood would respond to the rasp. I love the look of oak and how the handles look. By the way they never made it to the cabinets as planned, my wife took them for a project she has going.
I LOVE working with the rasp! I didn't make the salad spoons as my wife said no more wooden spoons. I did need some handles for a couple of cabinets. Hope you like this idea. The only tools used were jig saw, 2 rasps, and a finishing sander for the outside edges. I found it a challenge to get the rasps to do the inside corners but with a little time and thought they came together nicely. I choose not to stain the handles and just gave them a nice satin sealer.
Making Perfectly Straight Cuts
We had fun with this project. We did a little research as my grand kids are small, we did the dots, we did drill them with forester bits and patched the drill marks. This allows the smaller kid to better grip the dice as they play. It was a cool project and now the grandson wants to try it by himself.
All About Glue
I had a problem with this class project. I can not change the address sign on my rental, so it took some thought of what to do to replace or have another type of project. I don't know if this will be good enough for a replacement for this class but it is what I came up with. My wife said we needed to get some coasters for our drinks and a light bulb clicked to life. I made these out of scrap wood and she said they are just right for her. I hope you like this.
I chose to do this project out of what I thought was a dark oak, turns out it is a kind of red oak as I sanded. Word to the wise, not all 12oz pop bottles are the same height. My grandson and I had a blast making this project.

I have had trouble with both miters and bevels, thus I ask how to do filler on frames that are going to be stained. I took this class after I made the two projects. So goes the learning curve. I found this class very helpful and I plan on taking more classes. Maybe I will get good at wood projects and not be ashamed of the silly mistakes.I want to thank my grandson for the help displaying the pictures. And yes we are learning together, more woodworkers more projects.
