bamboo ladle?

MrNorth4(Sweden ZOne 1)June 15, 2005

Does anyone know how to make a bamboo ladle like this:

I find it impossible to find anyone to buy at a reasonable cost (not more than 15 euros).. So I was thinking about making one by myself. So if anyone has ideas on how to make them, then im all ears ;)

kind regards

Hida Tool ( sells a wooden bowled ladle for a very reasonable price. You may need to call them as I don't know if they offer it on line. The veneer and bamboo ladles are hard to make, don't last long outdoors, and are indeed expensive.

hi Henrik,
I make my own,they are very easy to make if you have the right size bamboo, I maybe lucky but I can buy plenty here in the UK in fact I have just bought two 6' pieces today.
take a look at this link it shows one that I made recently.

Hi Henric
Many of us move to Visit to the web site.
We use Madake, hachiku, and moso to make ladle. Moso bamboo is ofeten used to make ladle because of thickness of wall. After few months to few years it will split. You can treat mamboo with PEG wich prevent spliting. When you drill hole,dril strait ,after tip of dril get into bamboo wall, then chenge angle. if you try to dril angle first, tip of dril bit will slip off. you might want to use masking tape also. to make handle fit, you need to use knif to adjust hole to make handle fit.( or handle)

Many peoples like you.if you visit to
Edzard will help you gradly.
