I had this black walnut limb….and had just seen a guy on DIY making spoons….
I used a hatchet and froe to split out the handle, ensuring long grain fibers from heel to toe. I initially shaped the bowl and handle with rotary burrs, but completed the spoon with carving tools and sandpaper. The finish is walnut oil because I had heard that it would build to a sheen. There may be a little more sheen here than if I had used mineral oil, but not much! The spoon measures approx. 14” long.
