I used some of the scrap pieces of mahogany I have to make my 1st spoon tonight,it took about 2hours to make.I cut the shapes out with my jigsaw,then used a little gouge I got in a carving set to start shaping the bowl of the spoon,it wasnt ideal for the job but is all i have at the moment so i used it as best as I could,when I had the rough shape I used a flap sander to smooth out the bowl of the spoon I then started sanding at 80grit and worked all the way up to 1200grit the spoon is so smooth it feels great in the hand.I finished it with some food safe oil and I am really happy with the way it looks!I made one small mistake by drilling the hole in the handle off center,but I learned a lesson and I cant wait to start the second spoon!

Looks great. I’ve been meaning to make a baby spoon for a while now. I have a bit of mahogany. I’ll give it a try soon.
