I don't have a spork. I've never had a spork..... but I think I want a spork ..... ??
A trip to an Op shop produced a nice stainless steel spoon for 20c. Don't use a spook from your kitchen draw, that just won't work !
I outlined the shape I wanted with a black marker:
Then set about removing the steel which was in the way of the spork.
I used power tools because I could, you can use whatever tools you have to achieve the same result (or better).
Here I'm using a small bench grinder and constantly dipping into a mug of water to stop it overheating:
Once the top section was ground away, I used a cutting disk to make the slots (also constantly cooling with water) :
I used a small stone to remove the burr. In hindsight this was a mistake because it left marks on the finished product which I couldn't polish out.
But its only cosmetic, so I'm not really fussed. I say this only so you can avoid the scratching.
I should have just used a small file, but I didn't really think about it :
Once the burr was removed, I filed between the tines and polished the spork:
Job done ! Ready for some noodles ....
All up it took about half an hour, including pauses to take photos.
If you don't have a spork. If you've have never had a spork..... but you think you want a spork ..... give this a go !
