Introduction: Make a Wooden Tweezers to Help Your Projects
It is easy to make!
Some projects need to more sensitive work and our fingers couldn't handle it. So we need an external tools that hold what we work with. I was made for myself a tweezers that comprises of wooden stirrers (spoon), shrinkable cables and hot glue. It is so useful when I work on electronics, wood materials, hama beads, glues and kind of light materials. I hope this instructable will be beneficial for you.

Step 1: What You Need For?
- Hot glue gun (needlepoint gun is better)
- 2 x binder clips
- cutter (knife, scissors, etc.)
- 2 x wooden stirrer (110 x 0.5 x 0.1 mm)
- 0.6 and 0.4 mm shrinkable cable (It's depend on wooden stirrer and tweezers openness)
- hot glue
Step 2: Creating a Joint of Tweezers
1- Fasten up the wooden stirrer by using binder clips and open terminal of spoons via scissors.
2- Use hot glue to paste terminal of stirrers together.
3- Put a material between stirrers that gives to you a gap. Adjust a suitable gap of tweezers for using on your projects. (**Note: This gap of tweezers will determine diameter of shrinkable cables)
4- Fill to joint of stirrer by using hot glue and remove surplus of hot glue via knife.
Step 3: Coating of Tweezers for Best Hold and Visuality
1- Cover the joint of tweezers by using shrinkable cable (0.6 mm, it depends on your stirrers and gap) and heat it for best coating.
2- Lastly, fit two pieces of shrinkable cables (0.4 mm, it depends on your stirrers) and heat it again.
Step 4: Ready to Use
I use this wooden tweezers and it is usable in my project. I have also made a video that how to make it.
