Damn!...

So what you are telling us is that you spent your weekend playing with your wood?...

Honestly, that is very cool!, You have skills.

You can create something like that and not build an AR?

I am impressed .... and overcome w/ extreme envy.

I can barely play w/ 'my wood' for more than a few minutes and I am done.

Wow! Your wood looks awesome!


Great job ODT.

Very nice OdT!

What did you finish it with? That kind of talent should be able to make wood stocks for an AR. That would blow some minds!

Since this will be used with food, hot & cold, the only finish on it is vegetable oil. I wanted to stain it a bit darker, but I didn't want it tainting the food taste any, so it's 'el natural'. (cooking oil is common for sealing wooden spoons, cutting boards, or other wooden kitchen utensils)



That was going to be my question. I've read and been told many times that spalted wood should never be used with food. The fungus that caused the black figure will supposedly make you sick. But then I've made several cutting boards with purpleheart and its supposed to be a gastro-intestinal irritant. Very nice piece though. You do good work.

So, do you macrame too?



Seriously, that's really good work - all that from a WECSOG Dremel?

Found this:

Safety Alert: When making a tabletop that will come into contact with food -- such as this butcher-block -- be sure that the woods you use for the top surface are food-safe. One wood to avoid, for example, is spalted maple. The spalting is caused by a fungus that can be toxic.

It came from this article: Butcher Block tables


I used to have a reference that listed all the dangerous woods and their toxicity. I do know that a good dust collection system or respirator should be used with the exotics and several of the common woods.

Funny you should mention that, cause this one looks a lot like the one that belonged to my father, which landed on top of my noggin more than once, when I was caught rubbernecking the TV from the dinner table.

Anyhow, thanks for the link XD_Fan. I did a few more searches, and am left with this summary of the threat; "....that the evidence is anecdotal, mainly from one individual's apparent
allergic sensitivity, and not based on an epidemiology study." (quoted from one of the pages I found)

Most all the information I could find was based on respiratory problems in individuals, that came from breathing the dust created when working the spalted wood. Didn't find much on using it for or with food.

Anyhow, there's lots of stuff in the grocery store marked as "food" that's hardly even close to food.... I consider the spoon low-risk by comparison.

If I'm wrong, you'll read about it in the paper.... "Man dies - Chokes on his own wood!" Read all about it!



I'm just repeating what I've heard and read. Most of the articles and people also say that your food probably has a higher count of spores and bacteria than the wood you using.

You are very correct about the dust being a big issue. I meet James Krenov several years ago. He told me one of the big reasons he does not use power tools very much is the severe reactions he has to wood dust. I know over the years Maple dust has become an irritant to me. My eyes look like I've been on a two bender if I don't run the dust collector full time when I'm working it. Still a great looking spoon though.

1GR is just jealous. All he can do with firewood is make a fire. And he has to use gasoline to start it at that. Hmmmm...that explains a lot of the eyebrow stuff now.

Someone has 1GR confused with SARS. WTF?

OdT, here's what I use for a dust collector



Most of stuff ends up in the can but some of the stuff still manages to get pulled on through into the bags. Only thing I don't really have good dust control on is the sliding chop saw. The can inlet has a 90 elbow so you get a nice spiral flow for good separation.

OdT

I orginally got the idea from another woodworker that I used to work with. Delta and other have made a lid that fits on a trashcan for some time. While poking around looking for one I ran across this first stage separator kit and bought one. Makes a huge difference in the working conditions in the shop. I don't have to wear a mask went sanding and have even made a floor sweeper out of PVC to clean up the crap on the floor. Only problem I've had with it is the times when I've not had a tight grip on something and it gets sucked out of my hand and into the can!

I know 1GR is pretty handy. He has posted some very nice looking work here in the past. I'm just trying to get him to post more pictures of neat stuff that I can then copy.

ETA: 1GR has personality issues!?

Depends on how green you want to go. Aniline dyes are used for toys since they're non-toxic. They come in a lot of different colors and wood tones. You'll have to play with them a bit to get the right color. Poplar takes stains very well.
