carved from mahogany. Had salad tongs in mind (hence photo op) but will probably just end up as a novelty. And another set of measuring cups I made from purpleheart.

I love the idea of using them as salad tongs. Makes me smile.
Well done.

I like that they’re able to scoop rather than just turn or toss the salad. Might become a FUNctional novelty.

These will come in real handy when you need an extra set of hands in the shop. Congratulations! You did a fine job on them.
