I made a wooden spatula today with purpleheart and maple wood. I cut out some smaller blocks of similar thickness and glued them together. Afterwards, I resawed it on the bandsaw to make it a little thinner. I used the spatula Amanda liked as a template and traced it on to paper which I glued to the wooden blocks.
Next I cut out the shape on the bandsaw and sanded for awhile. I finished the spatula with mineral oil.
