My son’s girlfriend, Ann Marie, loves to cook and is a very good cook. She had us over 3 times while we were in Ana Cortes. But in her kitchen she was using this old wooden spoon and the corner was broken off halfway across the face. So I traced it on a piece of paper and made this one to match it as close as I could using Birdseye maple.
It is 11” long
It was buffed with Tripoli to make it feel real good and then coated with Behandla salad bowl finish.

Cheers, Jim

Hey Jim, if the cooking is as good as the crafting you’re a very lucky man, sounds like a win, win, that maple won’t wear out for a while :)
cheers mate

Thanks for looking and the nice comments.
Hey Pete, that’s what I’m hoping, too!! We use maple spoons in the kitchen and they don’t ever wear out!!

Hi Dave. I’d have to drive almost 2400 miles to collect on that!! This is just gratitude for what’s already happened!!

Great spoon Jim,
I’m sure it will be a treasured possession.

Only 2400 miles, you will be hungry by then. LOL
