wooden honey dipper

by Tinni Arora


Thank you for sharing all the fabulous information.
Could you pls tell me -

How good is teak wood to carve out a honey dipper and what is the best finish for it, as it would stay immersed in honey?

Thank you

Teak is great wood but very hard.
It would be fine left unfinished.
You could first dip it in water after you have sanded it. When dry, sand again with very fine sandpaper. This will make it extra smooth.
