Grill tools tutorial part 2

Make a handle for the fork just like you did for the spatula.
Cut a fork shaped piece from the soft metal and crimp the handle end. Dip the metal part of the handle into tacky glue, then super glue and attach to the fork piece. The glue should be at the back.
To make the tongs we're going to use a piece of a large paper clip. Slip a scrap piece of wood into the clip and use needlenosed pliers to crimp the curve tightly. You want the curve small enough to look like tongs.
Cut the ends evenly (about 1.5 inches) and use the pliers to turn the ends in slightly. Use a craft knife to flatten one side of a round toothpick. Cut two handles of equal length. Glue to the sides of the tongs using the tacky/super glue combination.
