This is my first spoon, I did a few weeks ago.

Carved the bowl with a gouge while it was still a square piece of wood then band sawed and shaped the rest by hand.

Pretty fun project. A great way to use up some scraps.

Thanks for looking.

Looks like a pretty nice piece of walnut bud. Well done.

Glad you’re having fun with handwork. Seems like you’re turning into Roy Underhill before my very eyes!!!..........Wes

Thanks guys.

Wes, this is more of a Paul Sellers inspired spoon, he uses a gouge on a block of wood to start off with. No axes or knives were involved with this spoon.

Mauricio, my mistake- a closer look shows no blood stains, therefore Sellers, not Roy. (LOL)....Wes

Nice, Mauricio! I like the handle shape and the grain pattern on the back. Thanks for sharing.

All that needs now is some mashed potatoes. Nice spoon. I agree with you on bowl first, handle later.
