To overcome this problem, I needed a sturdy, but slim spatula, so I could turn one individual potato if I needed to without disturbing others.
Here it is.
Using a cheap shop-bought plain spatula as a starting pointThis was made by adapting and enhancing a cheap shop-bought spatula.
Below on the left is the original spatula, which had been conveniently manufactured from a single piece of pressed stainless steel. The inconveniently wide blade is shown on the right. It was actually quite sturdy, as the steel handle was quite thick
However, I didn't like the rather uncomfortable plain steel handle, so I wanted to not only make the blade slimmer, but also add a decent wooden handle.
Here you can see the curved profile of the handle. This would need to be flattened out later to create the new handle...
