Walnut spoon scraper

My mother requested a spoon for scraping the bottom of the pot when she makes oatmeal. This is what I came up with, based on roux spoons.
It is made from a scrap piece of walnut flooring that was headed to the dumpster at a friend’s house.
Spoon measures 15” long. I roughed out the shape with my bandsaw. The rest is done with chisels, rasps, files, a spokeshave, scrapers and sandpaper. Finished with coconut oil.
Thanks for looking.

I love the shape – seems very scrapery-useful. Well done, and a much better use for the beautiful walnut flooring than the dumpster.

Thanks folks. As to the walnut flooring, it’s beautiful, but I can’t imagine spending that much money on solid walnut flooring. My gain.

Rob – Keep at it. I like making spoons when I don’t have the time/energy to think about a bigger project. I get one started and then pick away at it as time permits.

This is beautiful, Sandra! My favorite cooking spoon is flat on the end. My attempt at making one looks like a shovel! Did I say it was beautiful? Thanks for sharing.
Edit: I said it was my favorite cooking spoon, I didn’t say I cooked with it!

Beautiful spoon. Nice wood.

I’ve been wanting to try my hand at making spoons and this post may be just the incentive that I need.

Thanks for sharing.
