Here is an easy Spoon Rest project with a twist – this Vectric version features a hinged frame that swings up and over the main spoon bowl area to provide a built-in spoon handle support! Swing back over for compact storage. The slight angle of the handle support helps keep drips from your spoons where they belong – in the spoon rest and off your counter top.
The sample was sealed and finished with a food-safe salad bowl finish. A light washing after each use is all that should be required to keep your Spoon Rest in good shape. Mineral Oil can be substituted for the salad bowl finish and re-applied periodically. Either finish you choose should have a minimum of 3 coats applied.
The CLOSED dimensions of the Spoon Rest are about:
4.875″ W x 5.25″ L x 1″ T
The OPEN dimensions of the Spoon Rest are about:
4.875″ W x 8.875″ L x 1″ T
This free Vectric Project requires Aspire 8.0 or VCarve 8.0 or higher.
