CLICK ON MY PROFILE (osageman) TO SEE THE PHOTO OF THE WOODEN SPOON. UNDER, LATEST PROJECTS… I can be contacted at, osagemann@yahoo.com if any one is interested in having me make a wooden utensil for them…

How is everyone ! Sorry this is taking so long to set up…


The suggestion I was given, was, to run the spoon guessing contest as a blog, so that is what I’ll do.

No one had the right guess last month, so I will use the same spoon. If you check back and see what people guessed last month, then you won’t be wasting a guess…

The rules are,

1.) Everyone will get 5 guesses. They can be used until the 25th of the month.

2.) You must pick the correct tree within a species (example: You can’t choose Locust, your guess must be black Locust or honey Locust)

3.) There will be only one winner each month. All of the correct answers will go into a hat and a winner will be pulled out (verified by the accounting firm of, Odie, Molly & Jake) the winner will be notified by email. All I ask is, just 5 dollars to cover the shipping of your utensil. I have pay-pal so that makes it easy.

4.) The contest will run until the 25th of each month and then start over on the 1st of each month. OK, let the guessing begin…

Hope this is a fun thing for everyone…:)

Osageman, It’s not suggested to run this contest as a blog. Once it is off the front page it’s off the front page. If you post it as a Project you will get the same results.
So, my suggestion is to post this as a FORUM topic, so that every time someone guesses it comes back to the front page, thus making it visible at all times. The Coffee Lounge in the Forum section is where I would post this contest.
Good luck everyone.

Very well crafted spoon.
It is similar to the one I just made using Myrtle Wood,so that will be my guess even though this one doesnt show any of the characteristic Tiger Eye shimmer in the grain.But that could be just the photo.
