Wooden spatula made of oak, dimensions cca 30×23cm (with handle). Customer has plan to add some metal part on front edge… It’s made of one piece of wood which I cut to four pieces , later glued and shaped on bandsaw and oscillating spindle sander.
Finish wood oil.

Cool spatula Ivan! But it’ looks more like a dust pan! I guess it’s called something else in Croatia!
Nice work!

LOL. I have to agree with others about it being a dust pan. A heck of a cool dust pan too.

Nope… something else is nešto drugo in Croatioan…

maj’, I still reckon it looks like a Spatula... all those dissidents don’t spend enough time in a kitchen!

I see there is some debate over what this actually called…whatever it is Ivan, nice job on making it.

Thanks all for views and comments , which bring some controversz about what this is. This looks like wooden dust swipe spatula, but it will have another purpose / more like BBQ spatula. Customer will add metal front edge.
Cheers all!
