Second spoon

The first spoon I made ended up with a handle that was too skinny. This spoon is very similar in size and measures 14.25” with a beefier handle.

I roughed out the shape with my bandsaw, then used chisels, a rasp, a scorp and a spokeshave. I’m reasonably certain it’s cherry, it was a piece from my cut off bin.

Finished it with coconut oil. I’m not going to give this one away quite yet. I may keep it for myself.

Thanks for looking.

Hey! A Soup Spoon! Looks very usable, too!

Now, just need a Cajun style spoon to help it out?

Looks good!

Very nice looking spoon. Had to be fun to make. If you were Harry Potter that may be able to double as your wand.
Have you made any bandsaw boxes. How about you try a box and I’ll try a spoon.

Great lookin’ spoon!!!
Will there be a knife and fork to follow?
Perhaps a set of tongs and a large salad bowl….
Along with a few weee little bowls???

Alright Bill, you’re on. I’ll make a bandsaw box.
Thanks for the comments

Nice deep bowled spoon, Sandra. What’s a bread spoon? Careful, Bill’s trying to get you addicted!
I really need to finish my first spoon. Thanks for sharing.

-- God bless, Candy

Ok. I have everything but a scorp. Maybe I can make one.

Candy – just a strong spoon for stirring bread batter.
Bill – I bought a small scorp at Rockler my last trip to the US. It’s okay, but I’m not looking forward to sharpening it.

Sandra,

When my wife gives me a positive on a project, she says “it looks store bought.” Thats what I thought when i saw it. LOL! Nice job!

Cool spoon. I admire your ability to do all that hand tool work and have it come out so symmetrical. I don’t even know what a scorp is! But if it doesn’t have a plug, I won’t be getting one.

Andy, I think you’d make one before you bought one.
