My Fave Spatula

So I’ve had this spatula for nearly forty years, since shortly after I first moved to Tucson. I haven’t taken the best of care of it that last few years. Running it through the dishwasher without treating the wooden handle regularly has desiccated the wood.

I’ve removed the the wood and compression rivets. Unfortunately I could not salvage the stainless steal compression rivets but I’ve ordered new 3/16″ x 3/8″ rivets from:

They will arrive in a week or two. Oh yah, I also had to order a new 3/16″ brad point bit to countersink the rivet heads.
My plan is to use some scrap African Mahogany for the handles, but that’s it for now . I’ll update when the rivets come in.
