Made this today. All I need to do is a little sanding and a finish on it.

I used a piece of oak to make this one. This my real true attempt at a “spoon”

Really cool spoon, I like it!
What did you use to carve it? Tools?
Do you use a lathe for the handle?

Lathe for the handle, belt and disc sander to define the shape and a ball burr in my power carver.

Nice spoon. Looks like one my mom used to crack me in the head with years ago! LOL

Seriously though, it looks good and sturdy and like it will last forever.

You could scrap the ice cream from the bottom of a 5-gallon tub with this fine utensil.

That’s a real nice spoon and I’ll bet it was fun to make.
