I plan on giving away several of my spoons. What I have decided is, to have people guess what kind of wood I used to make this spoon from. I made this spoon not long ago. It is NOT Osage. Not sure how long I will run it before giving the utensils away. The first 3 people with the correct entry wins an Osage spoon. NO cheating. You only get one chance, one guess. And this spoon is Not for sale. I love when you get nice figure in the bowl area. This one will go in my personal collection. The 3 winners will get to choose the utensil of their choice. (except, ladles) Please post them in the comment section. Hope you enjoy…

OK, let the guessing begin, John

My thought was cherry as well. I have my doubts about it being a common easily recognisable wood though, seeing as it’s a contest and all you’ve probably made it somewhat difficult. But I’ll wager a guess nonetheless.

I’m not good at wood ID, but I’m going cherry too. Very nice work.

Beautiful spoon and lovely choice of wood.
I was also thinking of cherry, or possibly Canarywood…............ but my choice is going to be:


You do great work, can’t wait to see your’e entire process.

I can’t reveal if anyone is right or wrong since I am giving it to the first 3 people that has the right wood. SO, I guess I will give you a hint; if 3 people guess one certain wood and you don’t hear that there is a winner, then you can eliminate that wood from the choices. When the 3 right choices have been made then I’ll reveal the wood. It probably will be hard because, even the same wood of a species can vary in color.

I’ve posted another blog in the series. It has to do with picking the right wood. The next blog will be on making patterns. John

Well it is a nice spoon and I’m going to venture the same guess as majeagle1 and say Olivewood

How is the instructional video coming? Anxious to see how it’s done.
