Salad Tong Project (Flow Forms)

In this project I was given two blocks of Maple wood (12 x 3.5 x 1.25) to create a pair of unique and interesting salad tongs.  The process started with researching what types of salad tongs already exist and what sort of flowing forms do I find interesting.  Pulling from these two resources, I began making orthographic drawings and progressed to blue-foam models.  In the shaping of the salad tongs I was only allowed four 90° cuts, on the band saw.  One for each line of my orthographic drawing.  The rest of the shaping was done with power sanders and by hand sanding.
