Automotive Spatula

Reclaimed sheet steel from the side panel of a van is forged and hand riveted with steel rod to create this tough camping spatula.

The automotive sheet steel for the blade of this spatula is the very last bit of a piece of a side panel of a 1980’s van that was removed to install windows when my dad was in the process of camperizing it. For years I sheared and snipped off circles for candle holders and other projects requiring sturdy sheet metal.

This camping sized flipper is very sturdy thanks to its three solid steel rivets and thick blade. A gentle curve adds to the ergonomics and visual appeal of the tone-on-tone color scheme. The rivets were hand made from annealed scrap iron rod. Length is about 18″.

Material: Reclaimed automotive sheet steel, rolled steel stock
