Lefse Sticks

This Christmas I made Norwegian Lefse flippers for all the folks that get together with us to make the large amounts we go through as a family during the Christmas season.  These are made from cherry and finished with food safe oil.  The blanks are cut out with a taper that goes from about 1/8 inch at one end to around a half inch on the other.  The width of the sticks is a little under an inch.  The handles are left square and the working end is rounded over.  I used a wood burner to make a design in the handle to dress them up a little.  We just used these for the first time and they worked really well.  The food safe oil finish didn't stick to the rolled out lefse and should make for easy finish renewal if they should need it in the future.
