I made up a template to use my router to carve out the bowl of this spoon as lots of people were asking for a spoon its taking to long to hand carve (4-5hrs to finish one) and working out to expensive,so this was a test to see if I could get a nice result a bit faster so I can use my little time in the shop better.The spoon is made of maple and finished to 800 grit then oiled with a food safe finish.I have started wetting the spoons after the first sanding as it raises the grain letting you get a smoother finish and the spoon does not get rough the first time the person who you give it too uses it.

With all the non-stick cookware on the market today wooden utensils should be a big hit. Great job on your spoon Ashe.
