I'm no chef.
I don't really like making food and I'm not good at it, except for when I make waffles, and that's maybe the only thing I do when it comes to making food. Tasty, crispy waffles...
Anyway, what I do like is woodworking and whittling, so when my wife asked me in the beginning of this summer if I could make her some kitchen tools in wood, I was like: Yeah, I can do that!!
I started making some spoons in various sizes that she might have use for, and of course a butter knife or two. We decided that we should try to replace our plastic stuff in the kitchen to wooden or metal. Therefore I now have this list of kitchen tools that I have to make, or buy. It feels like a good challenge for this fall.
In the picture below is some of the stuff I've made, and can cross off the list.
Why wooden tools? Obviously it is much better looking and aesthetic than plastic tools. But it's not just for the aesthetic we decided to try to get a plastic free kitchen. Plastic releases all kinds of toxic substances that aren't good for the body and can upset the hormonal balance, especially for kids. I do not have all the knowledge in the subject so I will stop the preaching now, but think about it folks.
