OK, here is the next spoon in the series, Monthly Spoon Guessing Contest.

The photo is of the front and back of the spoon. I left a little sap wood in the spoon for contrast, because the wood was so dark..

Here are the rules.

1.) Only one utensil will be given away each month. (The winner gets his choice of a spoon, etc,,,(up to a $30 dollar value)
2.) Everyone has 5 guesses.
3.) The contest will run the 1st to the 25th of each month.
4.) Everyone with a correct guess will be put into a hat and the winner will be drawn from all the correct guesses. (25th of each month) Verified by Molly and Odie. (even a nice steak bone couldn’t sway them, last time… YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE, :)
5.) You must correctly guess what tree the spoon was made from, example: You must be specific, (black locust or honey locust) but not just locust in general.
6.) And the most important thing to remember is, have fun!!!

ProutyBoy: It’s the same spoon, two different photos. Check out the previous contest for more info.

YOUR KIDDING, RIGHT?, it’s not the same spoon or even the same color. This one is more red, with a little sap wood and the other one is more honey colored. Tell others about this and let’s get as many guessing as possible. Keep guessing.

i think this should be a blog, so it could stay at the top every time someone responds, because otherwise, its just gonna go deeper and deeper into the pages. in a month no one will even know it’s here.

In all fairness we don’t know what finish or stain you’ve added. Light or dark. See what I mean? Even mineral oil would change the color.

The only thing I use to finish a wooden utensil with is mineral oil. (that’s all you need on ANY utensil) Thanks Mike, I never thought about letting people know about that.

While I’m thinking about it, I want to comment on what people use to finish their spoons with. They suggest a lot of different things. Usually my moto is; you get what you pay for, but, in the case of wooden utensils, mineral oil works the best and cost the least. 18 ounces of mineral oil cost $1.88 at Wal-Mart and will last you almost forever it seems.

I’ve tried mixing bees wax and mineral oil together, BUT, it doesn’t last any longer than just using straight mineral oil. Once you put a wooden spoon in something “hot” you are cooking, there goes whatever you have on your wooden spoon. That’s why your wooden spoons look so dull after you cook with them. Just my experience anyway. Let me know what you think, and what your experiences are… John

I think proutyboy was simply stating WHAT tree he thought it came from. I think he was pointing out his window at the third tree to the left in his neighbors yard. To elaborate, What SPECIES of tree did this spoon come from. That should clear that up for you proutyboy. Funny response though, like the humor.
