    Blacksmithing: Cooking Utensils - Forks, Spatulas, and Spoons with Jim Slining
    If you can't stand the heat, get a longer handle! Traditional "open hearth" cooking practices required one to contend with the radiant heat of live embers. This cooking style is now popularized in the form of outdoor grilling. Either way, tools are required which will allow one to attend to the feast from an appropriate distance. In this class, we will attend to the feast of skills required for a large battery of cooking utensils. While each student will make one fork, spatula, and spoon, they will leave ready to arm the serious outdoor cooks in their home communities.

    We are pleased to bring you another great opportunity as presented by our sponsor, and friends at Easy Wood Tools. We are having a raffle! Presented to you are three beautiful turning tools donated to us, by Easy Wood Tools for the purpose of raising funds for our woodworking community.
    The tools you will have an opportunity to win were custom made by Easy Wood Tools for us, and you. The wood used in the handles were hand picked by @Jim from Easy Wood Tools these handles are made from curly maple that Jim acquired from a nearby Woodcraft Store. Unfortunately I am not able to show you the actual handles with the curly maple, I have tried without success to take a picture displaying the curled handles, and my photography skills aren't able to capture the quality of the wood handles, but just know, they are beautiful!
    Above are the Easy Wood Mid-Sized Tools that are displayed on their website, you will receive the Easy Wood Mid-Sized Finisher, Rougher, and Detailer, with Curly Maple handles made just for us by the fine folks at Easy Wood Tools.

Last but not least, have fun! And thank you for your support!  
    Where your money goes

    This time, we are directing the bulk of the raffle proceeds to offset the costs associated with running this woodworking community, yes, this community cost money! And we need you to help us keep us live, thus in turn, keep us helping our Wounded Warriors and disabled veteran woodworkers.

This is your community, this is your chance to help in a direct manner by contributing to offset the costs associated with running our woodworking forums and the causes we support.
    In closing
    Our entire community would love to thank the folks at Easy Wood Tools. EWT has been a staunch supporter of our woodworking community from the beginnings of our existence.
    I have had various phone calls and email interactions with the folks at Easy Wood Tools, and each phone call I had came with a question from Easy Wood Tools, "What can we do for The Patriot Woodworker's and our veterans?".
    Easy Wood Tools, from the days of Craig and Donna Jackson, to the days of Chris Caliendo and @Jim from Easy Wood Tools , there has been a common thread in their philosophy, support American Labor, Support our Veterans, and Support The Patriot Woodworker's.
    We are honored to have such a great American company with us. Without our sponsors Easy Wood Tools and our additional main sponsors, we could not stay live as a woodworking community.
    Thank you Easy Wood Tools!
