More scraper action

If you're a baking nerd like me, this is what you get excited about.
This one is heading off to my cousin.

Another one in the making...first of the full 4.5" blade version.

Jiggin' Around

I love making things. More than just things...I love making tools. Because tools are things that make things.

This is a drill jig for making pastry scrapers. The piece registers along the left and top. The drill bushings allow me to consistently place the holes in the blade and handles, thus saving a lot of work.
