Woodworking Plan: Kitchen Wooden Tongs
This is a great little gift that will please any recipient. Kitchen tongs are used for everything from tossing salad and twirling pasta to grabbing a hot bagel from the toaster (wooden tongs are perfect for this task!). The project takes advantage of the innate quality of thin wood: flexibility. Woods with low odor and taste are recommended for contact with food, so maple and beech are used most often. This is a great way to use up those off-cuts you’ve been saving for that ‘special project’. The design is a template; make them longer, wider or thinner depending on your mood and material at hand.
This plan is delivered as a 5-page Downloadable PDF, which you can view and/or print.
