I pruned my yashino cherry tree, and the limbs were big enough for a spoon. I used a hatchet to rough the log to a board then used hand planes to get a 5/8 inch thick board. Next, I used a coping saw to get the profile of the spoon and handle. Then a carving chisel to scoop out the head on one side, and rasps to round over the other side. For the handle just use a plane to turn four 5/8 inch sides to 8 equal width sides, then make it round with a rasp. I added some pyrography for interest, then finished it with 4 coats of sesame oil.
