John Economaki, founder of Portland, Oregon-based company Bridge City Tool Works, invented a device anyone can use to create their ideal set of chopsticks by hand. Economaki calls this invention The Chopstick Master.

The Chopstick Master works by holding a thin piece of wood in place inside a red arm. The red arm makes a five millimeter chopstick tip, however, Economaki also made a green arm for a two millimeter finished tip for those who prefer a narrower eating utensil. While the wood sits in place, a user uses a metallic shaver to cut away the excess wood, the base of the chopstick remaining thicker than the tip. A user does this until no more wood shavings come off, but then switch to the next side to repeat the process. This happens four times, for each side of the chopstick. Economaki made a video a user can follow along to create a finished product.

Economaki sells The Chopstick Master for $195.
