So I am a little slow at the project posting here.
All of these Pig Tail Steak Flippers were done last fall.
2020 had turned out to be a year of kitchen gadgets for me.
All made from scrap wood or locally harvest wood.
Left to right,
Walnut, Mulberry, Ebonized Ash, Apple, Cherry, and Mesquite.
The small Walnut handle, 2nd from the left was too small. I cut it off,
and made the spalted maple one to replace it. And the customer requested a hole in the handle
for a leather loop to hang it from his grill.
I think any future handles will have that option too.
This was a fun project that I could do after work. Not to time consuming.

Nice work John. Reminds me a little of the handmade hot dog sticks I recently won on my outdoorsman forum for winning the ugly Christmas sweater contest!

I only made the handle. Metal part is a store bought kit.
Would not be hard to make the metal part though.
Bought one for myself, and next thing I know I taking orders and selling them.

Never thought of a hot dog stick, marshmallow stick would be fun. I think I would leave the tip blunt. The top of the hook is very sharp,, and I stabbed myself a couple times.

They are nice for steaks and chicken. I bought both kits, 10” and 16”. I found the 10” to be perfect length, and the 16” I felt was too long. A thick steak was a little to heavy, hard to flip. Maybe a longer handle to get more leverage. Two handed steak flippers. Lol.

Thanks for the comments.

There is something I’ve never seen before, very interesting!

Sure would beat the greasy finger tipped welding glove I’ve been using all these years 8^)

Nice variety and nice work there John!
