Step 1: Parts an Tools You Will Need

Here are all the parts and tools you will need...

Tools:
- an axe
- electritians tape (color of your choice)
- scissors

Parts:
- peg
- a branch

Step 2: Preparing the Parts

A branch needs to be cut in two equal pices, which means - on half. I used an axe to do that, but you can cut it with anything else that can cut wood.

On both sticks take about 2 cm, and peel of the bark.

On the other side tape some electritians tape, for the sticks look better.

We also have to extract the only metal piece of the peg.

Step 3: Finishing

Now, you have to put two sticks to fit on to the metal piece of peg.

And there it is, your brand new easy-to-use chinese chopsticks...

I hope you've had fun reading this instructable, or better yet, making those chopsticks! English is not my mother tongue, so sorry for grammar mistakes :)

    its not hard. you just have to practice. hold it in different ways until you find the most comfortable and easy to use spot, memorize it and use the same spot every time.

    Good idea, but why didn't you use chopsticks? This looks like a crude form of a clothes pin or maybe pliers the top part is suppose to to be the part closed while the part that touches the food is naturally open and ready.

    I dunno huh. If you can't use chopsticks, then maybe you need other people to feed you. To have to use trainer-chopsticks means you'd need some serious hand/eye co-ordination issues. It's true that using chopsticks well takes skill, but I dunno if this is a very safe way to eat. Wouldn't the peg-metal-thingy shoot off after a while?

    Just learn to use real chopsticks, it's not that hard to learn. The instructions on the packaging just make it look hard
