My wife said she needed a longer wooden spoon so I made this one out of a dry pecan branch we brought into the shop last year. It was a little cracked on the ends but it finished up okay at 14 1/2 ”. It is 5/8” diameter. I finished it with mineral oil.

Cheers, Jim

Jim, do you shape the “bowl” part before or after turning the handle?

Great looking spoon Jim.

Hmmm, looks like some “stirring” coming up. Hope it’s not you on the receiving end. LOL.

Cool spoon. Keeping everyone happy. That’s the way to stir the kettle.

COOL Spoon!

Could you also call it a Shoe Horn for the Wee People? :) :)

Really wonderful, it will be perfect for those long jars, I always end up with chutney on my fingers.
Beautiful work, lucky wife.

Nice little spoon, Jim! I like the wide part (does it have a name?) at the spoon end. How is the air dried pecan to turn? Thanks for sharing.

very nice spoon I like the design on the handle. My Mother had a long wooden spoon, not so much for big cooking pots but to extend her reach to whack us kids as we moved quicker than she did.
