Hi guys,
I was asked to make 20 honey dippers, so today
I thought i would make a start, just using up various
pieces i had laying around, mostly old pen blanks!
It was good practice with the skew chisel,,,,,, within
a couple of hours playing around i had done 12 reasonable
ones, and a few failures too!:o:o........here are the results.....
any comments and advice welcome!

Very interesting assortment of honey dippers. I have a couple of questions long are the honey dippers? How thick are the handles?

Hi christos,
Dunno,,,,,,:doh:I didn, t measure them just turned untill they
looked about right:C?.........i am guessing 100 to 120mm long
and between 10 to 15 mm thick...I finished them with u-beaut
food safe mineral oil..:2tsup:

Good set of Honey dippers. I always find that Dibbers out of Pinus crapiatia is good practice - NO Sanding allowed to make it interesting, donated to the woodclub for club sales or done as a demo at the club.
